Electron Density Phantom

For the calibration of Hounsfield Unit (HU) vs. electron density of CT radiotherapy treatment plans

OVERVIEW

  • D100 compatible
  • Calibration of radiation oncology treatment plans
  • For the opimization of the delivered dose to the patient
  • Provides realistic tissue simulation and values within the higher density range (bones)
  • Tissue-equivalent inserts are available separately

 

The Electron Density Phantom houses 5 different tissue-equivalent material inserts used for the HU to electron density calibration of CT scanners and radiation therapy treatment planning systems.

All tissue-equivalent materials represent the real human tissue with respect to physical density and electron density.

A new revised edition of the EDP provides tissue-equivalent realistic physical densities and electron densities of human tissues of highest interest in radiation oncology treatment planning.

The non-accordance of these values is a major shortcoming of other available electron density (or tissue-equivalent) phantoms.

The Electron Density Phantom is the first phantom to provide realistic tissue simulation and values in the higher density range (bone).
