Verify ultrasound system and transducer performance. Doppler 403™ and Mini-Doppler 1430™ Flow Phantoms help assess system velocities using precision flow rates and proprietary blood-mimicking fluid.


Calibrating your Doppler ultrasound systems for accurate flow measurements optimizes the output, offering meaningful results to patients undergoing noninvasive testing.

Comprehensive QA & Compliance Testing
Determine maximum signal penetration, channel isolation, and flow rate readout accuracy for various angles and beam directions — with capabilities exceeding ACR, ECR, AIUM, and other QA program requirements. The horizontal segment simulates a carotid artery and the diagonal segment is used for measuring Doppler sensitivity and developing scanner techniques.

Unparalleled Tissue Mimicking
Our phantoms contain blood-mimicking fluid ultrasonically similar to human tissue, with an electronic flow of 1550 m/s. Patented High Equivalency Gel (HE Gel™) offers tissue mimicking for evaluating image uniformity, detecting dead transducer elements, and assessing maximum penetration depth.

Two Modes in One Phantom
Both phantoms are self-contained Doppler flow and B-Mode QA test systems, with streamlined fluid flow at variable rates in a continuous or pulsed mode.


Doppler 403 Flow Phantom

  • Ideal for abdominal flow measurements
  • Laminar and parabolic flows available (velocity dependent)
  • Supports routine QA, education, and research
  • Measures axial and lateral resolution from the surface to 16 cm deep

"The Doppler 403 Phantom is phenomenal. I cannot believe how flexible it is and how reproducible the results are from unit to unit.”

  • Fady Kassem
  • Medical & Health Physicist


Constant, pulsatile, and custom flow mode options available. Volume flow settings support reliable system velocity testing.

Extended Phantom Life

Our rejuvenation program can extend the phantom’s life by 10 years. Rejuvenation replenishes fluid inside the phantom lost over time – and certifies the phantom as comparable to new.

Easy Setup

Entirely self-contained, Doppler Flow Phantoms can go from storage to use in less than 10 seconds.

Sono Transducer Holder

Included Sono Transducer Holder enables placement of the transducer in a precise location for reproducible tests over time.

Travel Case

Lightweight, soft, custom carrying case includes a shoulder strap, and space for gel bottle and user guide.

Transducer Evaluation

Optional SonoTE™ Phantom is a low-cost, high-value ultrasound transducer evaluation device. It provides uniformity tests for linear, convex and intercavity transducers.
