Rat Phantom Cylindrical For R&D can be fabricated either as a simple cylinder or as an anatomically correct mouse (rat). Both phantoms are powerful tools that can be used for testing and calibration of various medical imaging devices.
The cylindrical version has 27mm diameter and 70mm height which correspond to the dimensions of small animals (i.e. a laboratory mouse.)
The small phantom is ultrasound, MRI and CT compatible and it can be customized in size and shape. The internal features can be also modified in terms of shape and properties to fit the needs of any particular bio-medical research project.
