The Phantom designed for a simple and cost effective verification of image alignment and distortion in hybrid scanning systems like PET/CT or NM/CT. It consists of a cylinder that can be filled with a variety of fluids. Several non-parallel rods of varying diameter and at certain angles in relation to the phantom’s axes run the entire length of the cylinder. Images produced with different modalities allow quick and simple identification of misalignments on fused studies.
Additionally, the phantom contains 2cm calibration module that is used by Pro-Control software to accurately identify the phantom’s position in space and accurately calculate any mismatches.
