Motion Simulator Sim2D

Sim2D is a powerful tool to assess temporal and spatial resolution on 3D X-ray imaging modalities as CT or C-arm systems. The simulator provides 1D rhythmic and arrhythmic motion of a sample probe at multiple trajectories.

Stationary anthropomorphic phantoms for validation and quality control are state-of-the-art. QRM-PC Controlled Phantom Device is designed to oscillate small cardiac phantoms, attached to a lever, in order to simulate more realistic situations in cardiac imaging.
The deflection of the lever (F) is controlled by a programmable high-speed Digital Signal Processing (DSP) computerized controller module. The deflection, as a function of time, can be customized by our accompanying software package ”Motion Editor”, a simple graphic platform for editing and import/export of motion profiles. Several preconfigured motion profiles are included.
Currently the device allows for a maximum amplitude of 25 mm, i.e. a total stroke of 50 mm, and up to eight motion profiles kept in memory. Figure 2 depicts a typical example of a motion profile.
ECG correlated CT reconstruction is also supported. At the start of a motion profile, the PC Controlled Phantom Device generates a synchronizing trigger pulse corresponding to the R-peaks of an ECG signal, either as a voltage signal (3 mV) or as a square current pulse (10 mA) in order to actuate an optoelectronic coupler.
