The American College of Radiology and MQSA recommend a uniform 4cm thick "high grade" cassette sized phantom for evaluation of mammography artifacts as it is often difficult to identify artifacts based on clinical or standard phantom images. We have designed two phantoms to meet these recommendations. The small phantom measures 18 x 24 x 4 cm thick and the large phantom measures 24 x 30 x 4 cm thick.

Both are made from tissue equivalent BR-12 with a thickness tolerance of .01mm and all phantoms are image tested and carefully screened for homogeneity and impurities.
