The Hip-Phantom comprises a water-equivalent phantom body, made from CTWater®, and two cylinders with a specified bone mineral density of 800 (cortical bone) and 100 mg (cancellous bone) hydroxyapatite (HA) per cm³ respectively.

The bone-simulating cylinders have an outer diameter of 30 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm (cortical bone), the inner part is 20 mm in diameter (spongious/cancellous bone) and is available in different HA concentrations (typically 100 mg HA / cm³).

The finished phantom will be scanned to confirm the quality of all manufacturing steps and the homogeneity and water equivalence of the phantom body.
All CT measurements are performed on a state of the art CT scanners
