Rugged Whole Body Phantom Kyoto Kagaku PBU-90
Rugged Full Body Phantom - Excellent Durability
Use for X-Ray training, disarticulates into 10 phantoms

PBU-50 laying down

Many of our customers are familiar with PBU-50. PBU-90 is very similar to the PBU-50 product. The PBU-90 phantom is designed for use in X-Ray. While it will not hurt a CT Machine, the Hu Values will not be accurate. If you need a phantom that images well in both X-Ray and CT, PBU-60 is the better choice.

The Whole body phantom PBU-90 is a rugged life-size, full body anthropomorphic phantom with a state-of-the-art synthetic skeleton, lungs, liver, mediastinum and kidneys embedded in Kyoto Kagaku original soft tissue substitute. Movable joints allow basic positioning for plain X-ray and training/research applications can be enriched by disassembling the phantom into 10 individual parts (head, limbs and trunk). There are no metal parts or liquid structures. Available in dark amber color as shown.

The durable material allows PBU-90 to withstand student handling better than PBU-50. As you can see in the photograph, there are no protective mittens on the hands of PBU-90. We are not representing this phantom as unbreakable. What we can say is that in product testing, the manufacturer confidently states the material to be more durable than the material used for other full body phantoms they manufacture. For example: Because of the improved durability, if someone accidentally drops the forearm/hand piece, it is less likely to sustain damage that the same part from PBU-50. We do not suggest deliberately dropping the phantom or "testing" the integrity for curiosity sake. Any product will break if it is abused - so - please don't take it upon yourself to be "the tester." PBU-90 is designed to help you have longer product life; but, is not indestructible. We suggest handling with tender care, just as you would a fragile elderly patient or someone who was badly injured in an accident. PBU-90 has a higher price than PBU-50.
