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

Mini-Doppler 1430 Flow Phantom

  • Ideal for cardiology and musculoskeletal applications
  • Supports routine QA, education, and research
  • Measures small parts resolution

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.
