Our life-sized paediatric phantom is based on a 5-year-old child. It is created from a synthetic skeleton, and includes visualisation on x-ray of the kidneys, liver, mediastinum and main pulmonary vessels in the lungs. This phantom has typical fractures of trauma and abuse, to further improve observation skills of student radiographers.
