2020 Joint AAPM/COMP Meeting - GOING VIRTUAL
Improving Health Quality. Increasing Global Impact.
July 12 - 16 | Virtual Meeting
Due to ongoing health concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as global travel restrictions, AAPM has decided to evolve the Joint AAPM|COMP Meeting content into a virtual (completely online) meeting in place of the in-person meeting originally scheduled for July 12-16, 2020 in Vancouver, BC.

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.
