Durable Training Phantom for Ultrasound
Multi-Modality Breast Biopsy and Sonographic Trainer includes a flexible Z-Skin™ membrane that simulates the look and feel of skin during scanning and biopsy. The skin material closes up on itself after puncture with a needle, providing good protection from dessication even after multiple training sessions.
The phantom accurately mimics the heterogeneous appearance of breast tissue under ultrasound, mammography and MRI, and has cystic and dense lesions embedded within the breast background. Half of the dense lesions are spherical and have a 100-300 micron microcalcification embedded within it, while the other half have a spiculated shape. In addition to helping users identify different types of masses in the complex structure of the breast, the calcifications are useful markers for image registration between modalities.
