Paper Abstract

An evaluation of phantom materials is presented based on attenuation coefficients and measurements of phantom transmission using an image-intensifier system. Thicknesses of acrylic and copper that are equivalent to various anatomical regions are presented along with a copper phantom that simulates the attenuation of several anatomical regions at specific kVp's. Tests for system-level performance of image intensifiers that make use of this phantom are briefly described.
