ANTHROPOMORPHIC PHANTOMS ARE IDEAL SUBSTITUTE PATIENTS FOR TEACHING/TRAINING RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGISTS • Permit unlimited repetitions of most views...patients cannot be used for this... • Demonstrate effects of changing technical factors... • Provide valid feedback to evaluate trainee performance... • Because the same phantom can be used year after year, performance norms can be derived to guide training procedures... HUMAN SKELETAL ARCHITECTURE IS DUPLICATED MORE REALISTICALLY WITH RSD SKELETONS THAN WITH CADAVERIC SKELETONS Soft-tissue molds and skeleton molds are matched for anatomic...

PIXY The Anthropomorphic Training/Teaching Phantom radiologically correct Small size and low weight simplify positioning most views student performance Organs accept contrast PIXY® was designed specifically for training radiologic technolo- is repeatable, virtually indestruc- tible and a convenient substitute Pixy is made of tissue-equivalent articulations. Students have no difficulty in maneuvering PIXY into most desired positions. PIXY is used to demonstrate anatomy and evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, OFD and TFD. Radiographs of...

SECTIONAL PHANTOMS Anthropomorphic Body Sections With Applications Throughout Sectional phantoms, with the anatomic and radio - fidelity of PIXY, are used widely in teaching/training, with many other applications. They represent an average male 5 ft- 9 in. tall 1175cm), with a weight of 162 lbs (74kg). They are rugged, easily transported Sectional phantoms do not replace simple geometric phantoms that are used to evaluate individual charac- teristics of an imaging system. They provide compre- hensive evaluation of the imaging system and imaging techniques under realistic conditions. Typical...

oblique views • Teaches spot-compression • Sensitivity training for patient • Helpful In training male students (no more loaded vests to simulate breasts) MAMMO II is a patient substitute that allows instructors to teach mammography positioning. MAMMO II mammograms, taken within the range of standard technical factors, provide realistic images with high contrast. MAMMO II simplifies classroom procedures, allowing trainees to take as many exposures as are needed to develop expertise, A molded gel provides realistic compressibility. Mammograms are taken at a breast thickness of 5-cm, using...

A small indicator box is placed next to the breast to signal when the 5-cm breast thickness is reached. An "ouch" is represented by a red warning light which informs the trainee that a patient's pain level can be reached at about this compression. The light is actuated 5-mms before the dead stop produced by the box. This procedure emphasizes the care needed for patients when the pain zone is reached. *The skull on the right is natural Our thanks to Dr. Carolyn Kimme-Smith for her invaluable help in developing MAMMO II. ^ RADIOLOGY SUPPORT DEVICES INC.
