We present an anthropomorphic pelvis phantom with lesions for transperineal and transrectal prostate needle interventions. The human-sized artificial pelvis includes bones, bladder, prostate with four lesions, urethra, arteries, veins and six lymph nodes embedded in ballistic gelatin. It is puncturable and shows realistic contrast in multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) as well as CT imaging. The phantom can be used for the evaluation, training and finetuning of multimodal prostatic intervention procedures, such as prostate brachytherapy and biopsy.
