BioClinica's "Bona Fide Phantom" (BFP), is a quality control tool for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) instruments, which features an acrylic-embedded calcium hydroxyapatite (CHA) step-wedge. You can successfully use the BFP on all mainstream DEXA instruments.
The BFP offers a range of densities (0.7 - 1.5 g/cm2), to verify instrument function over the clinically relevant range, not just at a single, "healthy" BMD. The phantom uses a CHA insert for direct assessment of bone density accuracy.
The BFP is cast in acrylic and comes with its own carrying case. The tote remains on the phantom during scanning and does not affect BMD readings, allowing rapid placement and removal for the phantom from the bed.
