Workflow Step

Meet ACR accreditation guidelines for CT image quality and performance evaluation with the CT ACR 464 Phantom.


Comprehensive CT Testing
Testing options with the CT ACR 464 Phantom include positioning and alignment accuracy, CT number accuracy, slice thickness, low contrast detectability, image resolution and uniformity, spatial resolution, and inter- and intra-plane distance measurement accuracy.

Proven & Versatile Design
The CT ACR 464 Phantom is made of the proven Original Solid Water® Zero HU formulation, with modules that support a variety of tests, and the capability to extend and work with other phantoms.


Modularity
Four included modules support testing for:

  • Positioning and alignment, CT number accuracy and slice thickness
  • Low contrast resolution
  • CT number uniformity assessment
  • High contrast (spatial) resolution

RapidCHECK™ Integration
With direct connectivity from the CT ACR 464 Phantom to the RapidCHECK Platform:

  • Generate a complete report of your CT ACR 464 Phantom in seconds
  • Leverage RapidCHECK’s evidence-based metrics to remove evaluation subjectivity

Meet ACR requirements for CT certification.
