    • Webinar #2 | AAPM Webinar Series on Inertia or Excellence: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion within AAPM
      Analysis of AAPM’s First EDI Climate Survey
      In 2020, AAPM completed its first ever equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) climate survey. The survey’s goals were to reveal areas of success and areas in need of improvement at the national and local chapter level within AAPM. This webinar will provide a thorough review of the survey’s findings and provide a space for all AAPM members to understand what actions may take place now as a result of the findings.
      Speakers: Julianne Pollard-Larkin, Kristi Hendrickson, Adam Wang | Moderators: Laura Cerviño, Julianne Pollard-Larkin

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
