The Jaszczak SPECT Phantom provides consistent performance information for any SPECT or PET system.
Multiple performance characteristics of camera-based SPECT systems are evaluated from a single scan of the phantom.
On-axis and off-axis transverse line spread function may be easily measured without removing the cover plate. Measurements of full-width-half (or tenth) maximum can be readily determined, either in air or in water.
SPECT Phantom types:
SPECT Phantoms are available in two models. The Deluxe Phantom is used for high resolution cameras. The Standard Phantom is used for lower resolution cameras.
