Posted: May 18th, 2021

MIDDLETON, WI-Standard Imaging, Inc., is excited to announce that Constancy Check Phantom has been released and is now available. This phantom provides an easy constancy check without the need for a radiation source.

“This device allows centers to remove the radioactive hassle of Strontium Check Sources while saving on time and cost,” said Matthew Payne, Sales and Marketing Director at Standard Imaging.

The Constancy Check Phantom provides the Medical Physicists with an easy way to check the constancy of response of thimble type ionization chambers. The phantom is more accurate than and replaces the 90Sr, Radioactive Check Source and is equivalent to ISO Class C43323. Chamber cavities can be drilled for a variety of ion chambers.

According to Evaluation of ionization chamber stability checks using various sources article, “Results show the linear accelerator provides a more precise and efficient method for evaluating the stability of ionization chambers due to less positioning uncertainty. The external beam measurements are also more compatible with a variety of chambers, while the check source is limited by the size of the opening.”
