Ludlum Measurements, Inc.  Ludlum Medical Physics Model L-760

  Acrylic X-ray Phantom

 

 Introduction

 

Ludlum Medical Physics Model L-760 Acrylic X-ray Phantom●  Modular Design of a Series of Acrylic and Aluminum Plates

●  Conforms to AAPM Report #31

●  Adjusting Exposure Controls and Automatic Brightness Controls

The Ludlum Medical Physics Model L-760 modular Acrylic X-ray Phantom is made up of a series of acrylic and aluminum plates that provide the various attenuation characteristics of various body part thicknesses. The variation in the number of acrylic plates and/or spacers simulate either a standard chest, abdomen, skull or extremity. The acrylic phantoms conform to AAPM recommendations noted in Report 31 (Standardized Methods for Measuring Diagnostic X-ray Exposure); and also those noted in Report 60 (Instrumentation Requirements for Diagnostic Radiological Physicists). The Phantom set is also useful for making exposure technique charts for commonly used projections. The latter has been a long standing requirement of the JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations). These phantoms are ideal for adjusting Automatic Exposure Controls and Automatic Brightness Controls on Diagnostic and Fluoroscopic Systems.
