- Different densities or CT values (HU), available in different shapes and designs
Tissue-equivalent materials are available in various 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. It provides CT values of approximately 38 HU at 120 kV tube voltage.
Examples of avaiable 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
