BOMAB PHANTOM

 

The NTS Bottle Mannequin Absorber (BOMAB) Phantom (Catalog # NTSBMP01) provides a functional simulation for the scattering of radiation in an adult human figure 170 cm tall.  Applications for the phantom include realistic-geometry calibrations, measurement performance and quality control testing of whole body counters which are used for in vivo bioassay of internally deposited radionuclides in heath physics programs.  The BOMAB phantom is also useful in x-ray radiotherapy techniques in the nuclear medicine field.

The phantom consists of ten (10) cylinders of various shapes (circular and elliptical) and dimensions which together comprise the average person

High-density polyethylene, approximately 4.76 mm thick, is used in all parts of the phantom because it is considered sufficiently tissue equivalent over the range of photon energies normally encountered in fission and activation solid body burden monitoring

Each cylinder is fitted with a 50 mm leak proof recessed filler cap mounted in the end of each cylinder.  The caps, when fully closed, are flush with the surface to allow the cylinders to be stacked.  The overall dimension are designed to comply with the requirements of Reference Man described in ICRP-23.  Tolerances are held to within +/- 10%.

The tolerances for the volumes of each section are held within  10% and the height values within 5% of the ICRP 23 dimensions.

Options:

A frame is available for assuring consistent, repeatable geometry in either the standing or sitting position.

 

BOMAB Phantom Stand - Standing Position

Additional sizes of phantoms are available upon request.  All components are made of superior quality material to assure safe and reliable operation.  Every effort is made to conduct the highest quality work in accordance with recognized national/international standards.

The NTS BOMAB phantom has been used by Pacific National Laboratory in a pilot study for characterization of phantoms.  The NTS phantom is also packaged along as optional equipment by leading manufacturers of whole body counting assay systems.

For calibration and quality control/measurement assurance of Whole Body Counting systems and in vivo bioassay programs, the phantoms can also be filled/loaded with the radionuclides of interest in requested concentrations in the tissue equivalent material.  We guarantee that each client will remain a remain a satisfied client.

We have provided BOMAB Phantoms to U.S. Dept. of Energy facilities such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Navel Reactor Facility in Idaho, NUKEM contractor at the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Commission facility, and to the Brazilian Radiation Protection Program sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

NTS will meet your needs on time and within budget and can develop innovative solutions to your problems.  Call or contact NTS for a price quote and additional information.
