Mammographic Accreditation Phantom - Gammex 156

The Gammex 156 Mammographic Accreditation Phantom has been #1 phantom listed by the ACR since the start of the MQSA program in 1994. The Gammex 156 provides the physical standard baseline for assuring the quality of the images produced by your mammographic system.

The 156 simulates the x-ray attenuation of a 4.2 cm slab of compressed human breast composed of 50% adipose tissue and 50% glandular tissue. Target objects in the phantom are of known size, shape, and density. These represent the different structures or malignancies found when imaging the breast.

Image quality and system sensitivity is evaluated using these targets and following ACR/MQSA guidelines.
