True Phantom Solutions designs and creates
bio-medical phantoms. Our lifelike phantoms are one-of-a-kind and made to mimic
the acoustical, physical and mechanical properties of real biological tissues.
Using 3D printing technology and synthetic material, the phantoms are made to
be an exact model of anatomical structures.
The phantoms are fully customizable and able to suit any bio-medical
project. Researchers no longer have to rely on human or animal subjects.
Biomedical phantoms are critically
important for the development of innovative diagnostic imaging techniques,
surgery treatment planning, and training of medical students. There exist
moral issues in the field of medical science, specifically in the
areas of research and experimentation.
Currently, our customers have two options
for meeting their needs:
money, time and personnel developing their own custom solutions
2. Rely on
human or animal subjects
The first option is extremely inefficient,
and can lead to poor results, since a typical custom solution can take years to
The second option is to use human or animal
solution require ethical approval and can lead serious injury or health risk.
Our solution is to use proprietary
synthetic materials, advances in technologies such as 3D printing, and
expertise in a variety of imaging technologies to develop a product that can
answer the current gap in the industry.
The phantom addresses a variety of current
needs and has the ability to make an impact on the prevention of health-disorders.
There are three primary markets for these phantoms: the first being neurosurgeons
who perform non-invasive neurosurgical HIFU procedures; the second target
market is researchers/scientists who develop- new medical devices; and thirdly,
medical and nursing students who require tools to practice their hands-on
Although there are medical phantoms
available on the market, they are less advanced and lead to sub-optimal results
in our customers’ work, which requires high-precision, anatomical accuracy and
Currently, our most important customers are
leading biomedical research institutions that are involved in ultrasound and
MRI diagnostics and treatment research. This field is expanding, attracting a
lot of business interest, and is projected to grow as a market.
phantoms have 3 main advantages:
1. The phantoms are true to
2.The phantoms are
manufactured with great precision through the use of a novel 3D printing
3. The phantoms are
customizable and the physical properties can be matched to any pathology and/or
1. The properties
of our advanced synthetic formulas are true to their real biological
counterparts (bone, skin, muscle, blood vessels). The synthetic materials used
feel like real human tissue and give a true to life appearance. More
importantly, the properties appear the same under objective imaging techniques,
such as ultrasound.
current 3D printing technology and nanocomposites, phantoms can be created to
match the physical dimensions and profile of any patient, thus allowing
synthetic copies to be used for planning medical procedures.
Physical properties can be matched to any pathology and/or patient. Many
dimensions of the phantom model can be customized including the mechanical,
acoustic and X-Ray propagation properties to be matched exactly to any
biological tissue specification.
A U.S. patent was filed for the bone
material, which is MRI compatible. The
ultrasound, MRI and CT compatible phantoms are important tools in the
development of innovative diagnostic imaging techniques as well as the testing
and calibration of medical devices. Our product is superior to human cadavers
as they have a longer shelf life and can reused for many years. Another way our
products are superior to others is they are fully customizable and the user can
request to add features such as aneurysms, foreign objects, realistic blood
vessels among others.
