Anthropomorphic phantoms for assessing systems used in ultrasound imaging of the compressed breast.

Abstract

Two anthropomorphic phantoms, simulating the breast as it is compressed against the chest wall during ultrasonic imaging, are described in detail regarding structural configurations and distributions of ultrasonic properties. The external shape of each phantom is that of a rectangular parallelepiped; this simple shape is consistent with the breast in the… (More)
