Mammo CESM™ Phantom

Image

The Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM) Phantom is modular, composed of two types of step blocks: a Breast with Iodine contrast block, and Adipose-Glandular density blocks. Its modularity allows combinations of blocks to be arranged to represent the compressed breast for small to large patients.  This lets users benchmark iodine mapping for a wide array of clinically relevant cases and independently verify them over time.  Product includes a hard case and a 5-year warranty.
