    • Episode #2 of the AAPM MP3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics
      Medical Physics 3.0 aims to improve the care of every patient. This concept becomes much more tangible for medical physicists who are forced into the role of oncology patient. This webinar will discuss the experiences of four medical physicists who have faced their own cancer diagnosis, and include the ways this experience has helped them understand and define how medical physicists can improve the care of every patient from diagnosis to post-treatment.
      Participants: Rebecca Marsh, Charles Bloch, Nicole Ranger, and Amirh Johnson

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.
