The Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM) Phantom is designed to address the need for QC of CEDM systems.

Breast with Iodine & Adipose Materials
The CESM Phantom is composed of two types materials.

The slab contains two sets of five plugs. Four plugs have iodine concentrations of 0.2, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 mg/cm². These concentrations have been chosen to cover the clinical range of iodine concentrations. A fifth plug is made of 100% glandular tissue equivalent material. This plug is positioned in the center of each plug group to mimic a glandular lesion. The contrast slab consists of half 100% adipose material and half 100% glandular material to test iodine separation from the background over a wide range of densities. The top and bottom slabs are made from 100% Adipose material and have rounded edges to mimic the realistic shape of a compressed breast.

Anthropomorphic Features
The CESM phantom represents an average human breast in size and shape.
