Our purpose is to develop the novel brain phantom including low contrast and to verify its potential to emphasize the motion correction effects in PROPELLER. Our proposed phantom set would allow not only to add the ability to low contrast objects but also to provide exact rotations instead of a healthy volunteer. The making process of the phantom consists of making profile curves, transforming to depths of the convexo-concave, printing using 3-D printer, and pouring agarose. This is the novel phantom making process.
