- Evaluation of the spatial resolution of PET and SPECT systems
The Micro-PET Hot Rod Phantom is a perfect tool to evaluate spatial resolution of PET and SPECT systems used for small animal imaging.
The PMMA phantom is designed for a FOV smaller then 40 mm. It consists of a fillable cylinder for the isotope. Two spacers can be used to align the resolution insert in the center of the phantom.
The spacers can be exchanged by two full body PMMA inserts in order to avoid a high signal of the isotope inside the phantom. The top of the phantom houses a bubble reservoir to avoid air bubbles inside the scan area if placed in a horizontal position within the scanner.
