Pro-MAM Biopsy


This phantom was designed to provide a fast and easy way to test image quality on digital biopsy mammography units and qualify for ACR accreditation. The phantom contains test objects that are similar to those found in the Mammographic Accreditation Phantom specified by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The extended top edge of the phantom allows ease of positioning on recumbent biopsy units. The phantom’s small size allows the phantom to be imaged in its entirety in a single exposure when used with a digital biopsy unit. Enables you to determine if the images are similar to, or better than screen-film. Can be used in both an upright and prone machine.
