International photoacoustic standardisation consortium (IPASC): Progress in the phantom development theme (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): James Joseph; Joanna Brunker

Paper Abstract

To accelerate the clinical translation of photoacoustic imaging (PAI), IPASC aims to define widely accepted test objects (‘phantoms’) for use with preclinical and clinical PAI systems and use these phantoms to enable quantitative comparison of PAI data. We propose the use of a polymer-mineral oil phantom composition, where all constituent materials have defined CAS numbers and are available from commercial chemistry suppliers. A pilot study involving 13 partner labs was designed and implemented. A detailed characterisation of the resulting acoustic and optical properties was used to evaluate the precision and accuracy of phantoms fabricated at multiple sites.
