    • Episode #9 | AAPM MP3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics
      How AI can advance diagnostic physics and MP work?
      Fast development of AI methods and applications create opportunities for medical physicists to develop new tools for quality assurance and optimization. In parallel, MPs should also be able to support and participate in clinical validation of new AI applications which are available for diagnostic radiology. This webinar will discuss these opportunities and challenges.

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.
