- Calibration standard for cardiac CT
- Investigate the detectability of coronary calcifications
- Achieve reproducible scoring results
- Include CaHA targets in different sizes and density
The Calcium Scoring Phantom, D100 (QRM-10146) contains nine cylindrical calcifications inserts in varying size and CaHA density (see Specifications). Furthermore, there are two larger calibration inserts (water-equivalent and CaHA material). All inserts are embedded in a soft tissue-equivalent material (approx. 30 HU at 120 kV).
In order to obtain absolute values for the calcium mass, a calibration measurement with the central calibration insert of known CaHA density of 200 mg CaHA/cm³ can be performed. The water-equivalent insert represents an additional calibration standard.
The phantom is ideally suited to use in combination with the Thorax Phantom as a set (QRM-20103).
