November 24, 2015 — The CIRS Multi-Modality Male Pelvic Phantom was designed for realistic abdominal and transrectal ultrasound scanning of the bladder and prostate. The phantom includes pelvic bones, anechoic bladder, prostate, urethra, seminal vesicles and rectum enclosed in a pelvic-shaped plastic housing with a Z-Skin membrane. The self-healing qualities of Z-Skin make this design ideal for the demonstration of biopsies and other image-guided procedures.

The phantom is made from materials that can be imaged under ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), making the phantom useful for applications that require multiple modalities such as radiation treatment planning. The phantom is provided with certified prostate and bladder volumes to enable assessment of volumetric measurement accuracy.

Modifications are available such as permanently embedded brachytherapy “dummy” seeds or gold fiducial markers for demonstration of target visualization.

Each phantom is sold with a certificate of compliance.
