ICRU Tissue-Equivalent Material

The best choice to simulate human tissues (lung, bone, brain) with respect to their physical X-ray attenuation properties

Tissue-equivalent materials are available in diverse shapes and designs providing the physical X-ray attenuation properties of the soft tissue of human organs, such as liver, spleen, vessels, brain, breast, muscle, fat, and others.

Tissue-equivalent material is the basis of standard anthropomorphic phantoms. Examples of available ICRU Tissues:

  • tissue-equivalent organs
  • low-contrast structures
  • lung nodules (hypodense, hyperdense)
  • liver nodules (hypodense, hyperdense)
  • fat extension rings to simulate obese patients
  • cerebral phantoms with white and grey matter
  • breast equivalent phantoms
  • blood-mimicking resin
