156 Mammographic Accreditation Phantom


Mammo156™ Phantom

The gold standard QA solution for breast health.

  • Required standard for image quality evaluation
  • Measure and monitor mammography systems’ signal to noise, resolution and image quality1
  • Simulate radiographic characteristics of 4.2 cm compressed breast tissue
  • Help improve patient outcomes


The Mammo 156 phantom helped establish the mammography repeatability and reproducibility standard. With this resource, any technologist (radiographer) on any machine can provide the same image set to help detect breast cancer.


The phantom mimics breast tissue. It is a feedback mechanism that provides a framework for constant improvement in early detection and mortality reduction. Imbedded objects mimic breast diseases, micro calcifications, fibrous structures and tumor masses.

The Mammo 156 Phantom for Accreditation

  • Quick detection of objects from 0.16 to 2.0 mm
  • 4 mm acrylic disc included to establish and monitor density differences
  • First MQSA-approved mammography phantom
