Routine quality control tests are required to show that a nuclear imaging gamma camera is operating within the manufacturer’s design specifications. Therefore, it is recommended that spatial linearity and spatial resolution testing be performed weekly on each gamma camera in an active nuclear medicine clinic.

Photon emission computed tomography (PET/SPECT) systems, like any imaging apparatus, require periodic performance testing. This modular phantom, 76-823 PET/SPECT Performance Phantom*, is designed to provide the data for such evaluations. It offers a single system for measuring resolution, linearity and uniformity.

Flood Phantoms

Flood Phantoms offer a simple, efficient means of obtaining optimum camera performance with respect to uniformity of response over the entire crystal area. They consist of plastic forms that contain a watertight central cavity into which a radioactive solution is introduced (via a filling port) and then mixed thoroughly. After the activity has been distributed evenly, the camera’s uniformity of response can be checked.
Applications

Fluke Biomedical

Lead Vinyl

The 57-902 Lead Vinyl is a smooth, easy-to-clean material and has a nonabsorbent, abrasion-resistant surface on both sides. It is very pliable and easy to drape. Comes in 24 inch wide rolls in assorted thicknesses.

Now you can achieve a uniform distribution of activity in a cylindrical phantom while minimizing radiation exposure to the technologist and saving technologist time. The Universal Phantom Mixer can accommodate any cylindrical phantom up to 11 inches in length and 12 inches in diameter.
