Abstract

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) are wonderful tools in medical practice that are based on the correct evaluation of high resolution images by technologically sophisticated equipments that are able to point out any alteration in human body. To simplify the quality control procedures, we realized a phantom coupled with a software dedicated, that allows to measure in real time and/or in a post processing session the slice thickness accuracy using only the phantom's images. The computerized dedicated procedure we have developed results also independent of the particular CT and MRI medical device.
