7. MRI phantoms

MRI phantoms are utilised in performance testing of the MR system; they are generally filled with aqueous paramagnetic solutions.

7.1  Storage and handling of phantoms

MR departments should follow the manufacturers’ guidance on the storage and handling of MR phantoms.  A record should be kept detailing the contents of each phantom; this record should be passed to fire departments in the event of a fire in the MR scanner.  Protocols for general use and the process for dealing with phantom spillages should be documented within the local rules.
