A novel breast phantom was created for the breast imaging community for implementation of quality control measures. The phantom contains well-distributed fat and fibroglandular T1 relaxation mimics and diffusion mimics. In addition, the phantom has a flexible outer shell so that it is compatible with several coil designs. In initial testing, the phantom fit in several coil designs, enabled fat-suppression tests, and allowed assessment of diffusion artifacts. Please visit our website for additional information:
