- QCT and QA for BMD of the hip with two BMD inserts
- Customizable inserts
The Hip Calibration Phantom comprises a water-equivalent body phantom, made from CTWater and two cylinders with a specified bone mineral density. Alternatively, the body phantom is available in tissue-equivalent plastic (38 HU at 120 kV).
The bone-simulating cylinders have an outer diameter of 30 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm (cortical bone), while the inner part is 20 mm in diameter (spongious/cancellous bone) and available in different HA concentrations (typically 100 mg HA/cm³).
The HIP Calibration phantom is routinely tested in a CT scanner to confirm the homogeneity of the materials and the HA concentration.
