Description and specifications:

The phantom background mass is 14 cm wide and 11 cm high. Inside is a simulated bladder with a volume about 130 ml and documented +/- 2 ml. Sound speed of background material is not specified, but it is about 1540 m/sec and is documented.

Outer dimensions: 15,5 cm Ø * 14,5 cm high. Weight:~ 1,9 kg.

The surface of the phantom is covered with a protective plate of ~1 cm hydrogel, which allows transmission of ultrasound. The sice of this plate may not be stabel.

There are different types of this model. For testing Caresono use type 2014-130ml.

Please indicate the type of phantom your want when you order.



Instructions:

If air bubbles are trapped under the protective plate a gentle pressure on the middle of the plate will make the air slip out.

Rotate the transducer slightly to mount it in the holder. Use the preservative fluid as coupling media.

Be sure that there is at least 2½ - 3 cm fluid to scan through. If possible set the scanner to test-mode or infant-mode.

Scan the phantom from the top surface through the fluid and the protective plate.

Don't remove the protective plate.

Caution: Don´t press the transducer into the phantom.

The phantom is made of fragile jelly and should be handled with care.

Please notice that the lid may not be 100 % tight. Drain fluid off before transportation, but never let it stay dry more than a few days.
