ATS Laboratories' Ultrasound Phantoms

ATS tissue-mimicking phantoms are used to evaluate the performance of diagnostic ultrasound imaging systems to determine continuing serviceability for clinical use. The phantoms mimic the acoustic properties of human tissue and provide target structures within a simulated environment and allow for the detection of degradation of image quality prior to patient use. They are essential to detect the performance changes that occur through normal aging and deterioration of ultrasound system components. Routine equipment performance monitoring can reduce the number of repeat examinations, the duration of examinations, and maintenance time. It can help verify the affectivity of maintenance actions. Phantoms are employed in the areas of Clinical Quality Assurance, Preventative Maintenance Programs, Field Service Testing, Research and Development, Manufacturing, Teaching and Sales & Marketing.
