Coronary arteries: new design for three-dimensional arterial phantoms.

Author information

Department of Cardiovascular Radiology, (URA CNRS 1216), Hôpital Cardiologique de Lyon, Bron, France.


Few three-dimensional (3D) anthropomorphic phantoms are available for testing 3D reconstruction and quantitation of vessels. The authors built a new realistic model of arteries with use of stereolithography, a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing technique. Each phantom is composed of the physical object and its digital "twin." The entire coronary artery tree and complex stenoses were manufactured with a precision below 0.1 mm.
