LSCT001 is a CT phantom developed to facilitate optimizing the radiation dose and other scanning conditions for Lung Cancer Screening CT examination with Helical CT or MDCT, which is aiming at early detection of lung cancers. As the screening is usually done on healthy people, the necessity of minimizing the exposure while maximizing the image quality is considered to be particularly high. The phantom is designed to set conditions for detection of small early lung cancers such as GGA, which are difficult to be found by plain X-ray. Anthropologic structure of the phantom provides life-like images allowing operators visual evaluation, while quantitative evaluation on radiation dose and density curve of the image can be done stimulatory with a single scanning.
