Mammographic Accreditation Phantom

3-5 Business Days For Order Processing


The Digital Mammography Phantom was designed to evaluate image quality in digital mammography systems currently used for stereotactic biopsy and localization.  This phantom is a miniaturization of the CIRS Model 015, Mammography Accreditation Phantom used for routine mammography quality assurance.  Objects within the phantom simulate calcifications, fibrous calcifications in ducts, and tumor masses. The 4.4 cm thick Mammographic Phantom is made up of: a 7 mm wax block insert containing 12 sets of test objects, a 3.4 cm (approx. 1-3/8”) thick acrylic base, and a 3 mm (1/8”) thick cover.  All of this together approximates a 4.2 cm compressed breast of average glandular/adipose composition.  Included in the 5 x 5 cm wax insert are aluminum oxide (Al203) specks to simulate micro-calcifications.  Four different size nylon fibers simulate fibrous structures, and four different size lens shaped masses simulate tumors.



  • Meets ACR Digital Mammography Quality Control Manual for requirements.
  • The small size allows the phantom to be imaged in a single exposure when used with digital biopsy units
  • An extended top edge allows ease of positioning on flat biopsy units
  • 4 year warranty


The Mammographic Accreditation Phantom will assist you in complying with MQSA and the American College of Radiology (ACR) Quality Control Programs. This phantom is intended for use as an integral part of the Mammographic Quality Control Program, and when used to perform routine mammographic QC, it will help you quickly, easily, and accurately evaluate the overall imaging performance of your mammographic system. This phantom will detect imaging changes so you can make the necessary corrections in order to maintain your system at peak performance.


The Mammographic Accreditation Phantom was designed to test the performance of a mammographic system by a quantitative evaluation of the system’s ability to image small structures similar to those found clinically. Objects within the phantom simulate calcifications, fibrous calcifications in ducts, and tumor masses. The phantom is also designed to determine if a mammographic system can detect small structures that are important in the early detection of breast cancer. Test objects within the phantom range in size from those that should be visible on any system, to objects that will be difficult to see even on the best mammographic system.

  • Helps ensure optimum image quality and peak performance of the mammographic system
  • Essential for MQSA compliance
