Mammographic Accreditation Phantom
Nuclear Associates is offering the Mammographic Accreditation Phantom (model 18-220) to ensure optimum image quality and peak performance of a mammography system. The phantom complies with ACR phantom specifications and QC requirements, contains test objects to simulate indications of breast cancer and can monitor the overall performance of the x-ray generator, film processor and screen-film combination. The phantom, intended for use as part of a Mammographic Quality Control Program, detects imaging changes so a facility can make the necessary corrections to maintain peak system performance.
