The Chest and Neck phantom is used for calibration of a whole body counters (WBC) for measuring the activity of radionuclides incorporated in human body (lungs, thyroid gland) with use of scintillation and semiconductor detectors of gamma-radiation in the energies range from 50 to 3000 keV.
The Chest and Neck phantom can be used in radiation medicine centers, nuclear power stations, research institutes, industrial hospitals and other institutions performing radiation monitoring of personnel and population, as well as by the Federal Agency for Technical regulation and metrology in order to comply with the Traceability Law.
It is an alternative to the BOMAB phantom, eliminating the risk of leakage of radioactive solutions.
Chest phantom contains the left and right simulator of lungs, and neck phantom contains the simulator of thyroid gland.
The chest phantom is the construction from the polyethylene (polyurethane for Am-241) units, which are the simulators of the adult man thorax. There is the polyurethane unit inside of the thorax simulator which is the lung simulator (2pcs). The radionuclides are distributed uniformly in the lung simulator.
The neck phantom consist reference volumetric sources (2pcs.) with radionuclide Ba-133 and it is simulator thyroid gland with incorporated radionuclide I-131.
The chest phantom has connecting places for install the neck phantom.
Standard values of activity
The whole body phantoms can be provided for rent.
This phantom can be calculated using the MCC-MT software.
