Customized Phantom Service

Meeting specific radiotherapy needs via a user guided service.

Modern Radiotherapy is a complex and constantly changing technological environment consisted of many processes. Even minor changes in isolated points of this chain can disturb the balance of the system. QA tools need to always adjust and be able to control all variables and parameters, however commercially available phantoms are mass production products that often fail to fit specific needs.

Customized Phantom Service

Customized Phantom Service is a totally customer-centric phantom designing and manufacturing service, where the end-user becomes part of a multi-level design process defining the desired features, and in harmonization with the know-how of a specialized team, creates custom phantoms perfectly tailored to meet user’s specific needs.

Past Projects

IGRT/SGRT QA – Head Phantom

Head phantom (1. Body part), constructed using CTs provided by the end-user (2. CT choice) with IC inserts (3. Dosimeter choice), oriented perpendicular to the axial plane (4. Orientation) including a specially constructed surface intended for SGRT QA and metal spheres within the bones for CT imaging reference points (5. Extra features).

These customized  solutions can also accommodate small  metal  spheres  at  any  desired  or  predefined location  acting  as  reference  points  visible  in  CT,  CBCT, MV, and X-ray  imaging. The external surface of the phantoms can be modified to simulate realistic external morphological characteristics, with dull surfaces that minimize artifacts and unwanted reflections of optical imaging. The end-users can also perform point and 2D dose measurements using appropriate inserts that fit into the phantoms.

IGRT/SGRT QA – Spine Phantom

Spine phantom (1. Body part), constructed using CTs provided by the end-user (2. CT choice) with IC inserts (3. Dosimeter choice), oriented perpendicular to the axial plane (4. Orientation) including a specially constructed surface intended for SGRT QA and metal spheres within the bones for CT imaging reference points (5. Extra features).

Proton Therapy QA – Spine Phantom

Spine phantom (1. Body part), constructed using CTs provided by the end-user (2. CT choice) with IC inserts (3. Dosimeter choice), oriented perpendicular to the axial plane (4. Orientation) including titanium implants within and around the spinal bone structures (5. Extra features).

A customized spine phantom to accommodate titanium implants and ion chamber insert was constructed. The phantom is intended for proton therapy QA based on a real clinical case of a male patient. Ion chamber inserts oriented at designated areas by the end user were positioned close to metal implants to evaluate their effect in the dose deposited.
