An integrated cardiac phantom solution was developed to correlate with clinically relevant parameters entered through a user interface (UI). Mimicking of human heart was achieved through integration of a flexible 3D printed heart model and peristaltic pump. Results depict the correlation between the input parameters to output parameters obtained through image processing of the phantom MR images. The work illustrates the structural features and motion measures of the cardiac phantom. The phantom can therefore be employed to assess novel acquisition and reconstruction methods. The utilization of 3D printing enables the use of subject specific phantom to study diverse cardiovascular scenarios.
