PIXY ® was designed specifically for training radiologic technologists. PIXY is 5 ft. 1 in. (156 cm) tall and weighs 105 lbs (48 kg). She is repeatable, virtually indestructible and a convenient substitute for patients.
PIXY is made of tissue-equivalent materials and has life-like articulations. Students have no difficulty in maneuvering PIXY into most desired positions.
PIXY is used to demonstrate anatomy and evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, OFD and TFD. Radiographs of PIXY are optically equivalent in density and contrast to human patients.
TAKE-APART PIXY’s small size and low weight simplifies positioning, as it can be positioned for most views. Models with organs accept contrast media. PIXY can be purchased as: Opaque or Transparent
TAKE-APART PIXY is used to demonstrate anatomy as well as evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, OFD and TFD. Radiographs of PIXY are optically equivalent to density and contrast to human patients.
The concept of grouping a large number of casualties in two teaching/training phantoms was originated by the Fleet Hospital & Operations Training Center, Camp Pendleton, California.
WOUNDED WILLY and DAMAGED DEBBIE were designed and constructed by Radiology Support Devices, Inc. of Long Beach, California.
Alderson ANGIOGRAPHIC HEAD PHANTOMS bridge the gap between physical and anatomical information requirements. Molded in tissue equivalent material, an accurate male skull contains a 3-dimensional, high-contrast vascular simulation to facilitate correlation of the radiologist’s subjective evaluation of angiographic image quality with actual measurements of resolution and contrast under the same exposure conditions.
