Title: Dynamic phantom for radionuclide cardiology

Abstract

A flow-based phantom has been developed to verify analysis routines most frequently employed in clinical radionuclide cardiology. Ejection-fraction studies by first-pass or equilibrium techniques are simulated, as well as assessment of shunts and cardiac output. This hydraulic phantom, with its valve-selectable dysfunctions, offers a greater role in training than in quality control, as originally intended.
