Paper Abstract

Physical and software phantom data sets have become an integral tool during the design, implementation, and utilization of new algorithms. Unfortunately, a common research resource has not been established until now for many applications. We propose a general software assistant for the development of realistic software phantoms. Our aim is an easy to use tool with an intuitive user interface. Furthermore, we provide a publicly available software for researchers including a common basis of reference data, which facilitates a standardized and objective validation of performance and limitations of own developments as well as the comparison of different methods.
