Abstract

The μSPC phantom is designed for the quality control of micro-SPECT/CT and micro-PET/CT systems. However, it is an assembly of six patterns stored in a cylindrical box and enabling to control both micro-SPECT unit in terms of uniformity, linearity and spatial resolution than micro-CT unit in terms of uniformity , linearity, spatial resolution, diffusion rate, low contrast detectability, linearity of Hounsfield coefficients and slice thickness. The construction material is plexiglass. As for the implementation, it was made on a micro-SPECT/CT machine of the type "speCZT eXplore CT 120".
