       New Break-Apart PIXY® Anthropomorphic Training/Teaching Phantom.       


Radiology Support Devices! Take-Apart Pixy
IDEAL SUBSTITUTE FOR TEACHING & TRAINING RADIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGISTS

Offered in opaque or transparent, Take-Apart Pixy is an anatomically and radiologically correct female designed specifically for training radiologic technologists. At 5’ 1” (156 cm) weighing 105 lbs (48 kg), Take-Apart Pixy is a repeatable, convenient substitute for patients and virtually indestructible.
Take-Apart Pixy may be ordered with or without abdominal and pelvic organs: stomach, gall bladder, urinary bladder, kidneys, rectum, and sigmoid flexure. The organs are air-filled but accept water or contrast media that can be easily flushed after use. Custom pathologies and traumas available at an additional cost.
Built with soft-tissue mold and skeleton molds that are matched for anatomic fidelity, Take-Apart Pixy permits unlimited exposures, demonstrates the effects of changing technical factors, and allows for evaluation of student performance. Students have no difficulty in maneuvering Take-Apart Pixy into most desired positions as the phantom is built to tolerate trainee errors.

Modalities:
CT, X-Ray, Fluoroscopy

Applications:
*Teaching & training of patient positioning, *Image quality, *Diagnostic radiology, *Dosimetry verification, *Protocol verification.

Anatomy:
  • Shoulders rotate 360º and Open 180º Sideways.
  • Elbows and knees bend 90°.
  • Realistic Supine, Lateral and Oblique Positioning.
  • Full Head Rotation.
  • Limbs and Head are Detachable at joints.
  • Right hand is molded with fingers positioned for an AP view.
  • Left hand is in an oblique-lateral position.
  • Feet are in natural position.
  • Segmented joints allow for approximate human articulation & flexibility.
  • Organs accept contrast media.
  • Small size and low weight simplify positioning
  • Unlimited repetition of most views for which patients cannot be used

  • Provides valid feedback to evaluate trainee performance. Designed to image any clinical view (AP, oblique, lateral, frog legs, etc.)

    Take-Apart Pixy is used to demonstrate anatomy and evaluate positioning and imaging techniques, including kVp, mAs, contrast, optical density, digital processing, OFD and TFD. Made of tissue-equivalent materials and life-like articulations, Take-Apart Pixy is more realistic than a cadaveric skeleton with radiographs that are optically equivalent in density and contrast to human patients.

    C1, C2, C6, and C7 were converted to mechanical nylon joints because educators in the field prefer full positioning capabilities for the head. This design permits the remaining neck vertebrae to be fixed in a normal position, while assuring a full range of head motion.
    The skull of Take-Apart Pixy has frontal and sphenoidal sinuses, ethmoidal and mastoid air cells, and the auditory ossicles. Bone sutures are radiographically visible.
    Soft tissues are available in opaque or transparent tissue-equivalent materials.
    The transparent Take-Apart Pixy has visible organs and skeleton.
    Take-Apart Pixy lungs are molded of tissue-equivalent foam with the mass density of inflated human lungs (0.30 g/cc). They are connected to the oro-nasal cavity by the stem bronchi and trachea. The oro-nasal pharynx is filled with a nearly air-equivalent foam.

           Wounded Willy/Damaged Debbie Versions of RSD's PIXY® Phantom.       




    Radiology Support Devices! ANTHROPOMORPHIC RADIOLOGICAL PHANTOMS

    DIMENSIONS: The size and weight of both Willy and Debbie is a small adult. Since technologists must learn to work with patients of all sizes and weights, a smaller phantom is as valid for training as a larger phantom, and positioning is facilitated. Each is 5 ft., 1" tall (156cm) and weighs 105 lbs. (48 kg).

    ANATOMY:
    Willy and Debbie are articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Fractures of the left shoulder and left hip are located in Debbie. To minimize handling problems, all other traumas of the arms and legs are located in Willy and on the right side of Debbie. The articulations provide a broad range of positioning of capabilities, even the "frog position".

    LUNGS:
    Lungs are molded of durable materials with radiodensities matched to humans in a median respiratory state. Animal lungs matching the human in size and blood vessels are available, but they are oriented towards research rather than training.

    SOFT TISSUES:
    Willy and Debbie have solid "soft tissues" that are hard and rigid. They cannot be palpated to locate traumas. However, radiological technologists are generally informed by the physician as to the views to be taken.



    SKELETONS:
    RSD manufactured skeletons are used rather than natural human skeleton. The latter are generally unavailable and usually consist of an assortment of bones ranging from children to adults of ages for which osteoporosis becomes a factor. RSD skeletons are not to be confused with plastic skeletons for teaching anatomy. RSD skeletons are made to fit the soft-tissie molds precisely. They have spongiosa moldings within marrow cavitities and outer, cortical bone. Both constituents meet the internationally-accepted standards for radiodensity and specific gravity.

  • 30 traumas and pathologies specific to Willy, 25 specific to Debbie.
  • Human Technical Factors.
  • Unlimited repetition of views without human exposure.
  • Radiographs that permit evaluation of trainee performance.
  • Teaching/Training for hospital ERs.

  • Willy and Debbie Differences:
    The most obvious difference between them is in the complement of traumas and pathologies assigned to each. Another difference is that Debbie has female breasts, while Willy has natural male chest contours. Debbie is fitted with a wig, while Willy is bald. They are dressed in camo fatigues.
