Carville have worked with leading physicists and radiographers within the National Health Service (NHS) to develop and manufacture a range of Quality Assurance Phantoms within the Radiology and Oncology markets.
The success of Quality Assurance Phantoms within the Radiology and Oncology markets can be linked to the advances in clinical screening techniques such as X Ray, CT and MRI Scanning. These diagnostic machines assist medical professionals in the identification and treatment of life threatening medical conditions.
It is essential to the medical profession that equipment is calibrated in an approved, reliable and repeatable way. Calibration of equipment requires the use of Quality Assurance Phantoms, which either simulate human tissue or assist in equipment set-up.
Carville produce a range of phantoms in acrylic and other engineering grade plastics, which can be used to calibrate both static and mobile screening and treatment systems. Typically, Phantoms can encapsulate other materials such as steel balls or aluminium foil.
