  • Causa
    The ct system phantom supplied with certain scanners has a special pin by which the customer can check the low contrast (lc) detectability for quality assurance. this pin consists of a nylon (aculon) body with six smaller lexan pins of 3mm 4mm 5mm 6mm 7mm and 8mm diameters which have contrast difference of approximately 1% from aculon. the lc test is performed by visually inspecting the section and selecting the smallest detectable lexan pin for a predefined scan protocol as defined in the ifu manual. however the pin visibility deteriorates over time usually a few years. this causes the test to become unreliable and inaccurate. to ensure that low contrast is within specification philips is providing instructions as a guideline to a more reliable check of the image noise on the water layer of the system phantom.
