Paper Abstract

Purchase of a digital subtraction angiography (DSA) system involves medical, financial, and technical considerations. The Lahey Clinic DSA phantoms were developed to assist in technical evaluation of DSA equipment by providing a noninvasive means of assessment of radiographic and digital equipment components before purchase. The same set of phantoms can also be used to assess performance of a. system at the time of installation and for routine evaluation. The critical components of a DSA system are detailed with special emphasis on the image intensifier and television camera. Individual phantom patterns are described, and images are presented.
