Organization: IEC

Status: active
Page Count: 54
ICS Code (Electroacoustics): 17.140.50
scope:

This technical specification specifies essential characteristics of a phantom and method for the measurement of void-detectability ratio for medical ultrasound systems and related transducers. It is restricted to the aspect of long-term reproducibility of testing results.

This technical specification establishes:

- important characteristics and requirements for a TMM 3D artificial cyst phantom using anechoic voids;

- a design example of a 3D artificial cyst phantom, the necessary test equipment and use of relevant computer software algorithms.

This technical specification is currently applicable for linear array transducers. A uniformity test prior to void-detectability ratio (VDR) measurement is recommended.

NOTE The basic concept of the 3D artificial-cyst phantom may also be valid for other types of ultrasound transducers; however there is a need for further verification (see Annex D).
