  • AAPM Webinars
    • Episode #5 of the AAPM MP3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics
      Why do physicists need high competence in patient interactions?
      Medical Physics 3.0 is about physics in the service of patient care, either immediately within clinical care or eventually within its research trajectory. Within the clinical practice, patient interaction can have a relevant and meaningful role. This webinar answers the if, the why, and the how of that prospect.
      Speakers: Todd Atwood, Derek Brown, Laura Padilla

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.
