Gain greater flexibility to meet more QA program requirements.
Featuring Full Contact™ curved surface to improve coupling between convex transducers and the phantom scanning window
Includes patented HE (High Equivalency) Gel™
Ensure efficient testing across entire frequency range
Gammex’s latest collaborative development has been designed to easily and efficiently meet your changing needs in maintaining uniformity and accurate QC measurements.
Our first phantom with the Full Contact curved scanning surface, Sono410:
Allows you to invert the phantom 180 degrees, and use the patented flat scanning surface for linear arrays
Exceeds ACR, ECR, AIUM and other international program requirements
Performance measures include:
Horizontal and vertical distance
Depth of penetration
Anechoic and echogenic mass resolution
Gray scale contrast resolution
"The tissue-like properties in Gammex ultrasound phantoms make them ideal for testing the performance of scanners."
Sono410 Full-Contact Phantoms
HE Gel’s response of attenuation-to-frequencies above 8 MHz supports accurate penetration depth representative of human tissue.1,2
Check resolution against published limiting values using the targets at 80 and 150 mm.
HE Gel is very uniform and has a nonlinearity parameter (B/A) that is equivalent to human liver.
HE Gel can be rejuvenated and your phantom re-validated any time to strengthen your investment.

An attenuation coefficient of 0.5 dB/cm/MHz represents healthy human liver tissue and 0.7 dB/cm/MHz represents fatty liver tissue.
Near-linear responses of attenuation with frequencies between 2 to 18 MHz support accurate axial resolution and penetration depth representative of human tissue.
