Radiology Support Devices Inc. (RSD) is the world leader in anthropomorphic phantoms for radiography and radiation therapy.
The company developed the world’s first phantom to guide radiation treatments by measuring the dose that would be delivered to a patient. Today, RSD phantoms set the global standard and are used in radiation therapy clinics around the world.
Oxford Scientific is a trusted RSD distributor in Australia and New Zealand. We service all major cities in Australia and New Zealand, and regional centres throughout Australia.

RSD’s anthropormorphic phantomsare an ideal teaching tool for radiological technologists. They permit unlimited repetition of most views and can be used for years to guide training procedures based on performance norms.
Soft-tissue and skeleton moulds are matched for anatomic fidelity and human skeletal architecture is duplicated more realistically than in cadaveric skeletons.
RSD’s anthropormorphic phantoms also meet the International Commission on Radiator Units and Measurements standards for radiation interaction properties of cortical bone and spongiosa.
Angiographic Head Phantom
Check angiographic equipment and isolate any operational issues with RSD’s Angiographic Head Phantom. The accurate male skull is moulded in a tissue equivalent material with high-contrast vascular simulation.
This enables radiologists to evaluate angiographic image quality and measure resolution and contrast under the same exposure conditions.
The Angiographic Head Phantom also features step wedge and resolution test patterns and is virtually shatter proof.
RSD’s Lung/Chest Phantom provides extensive vascular detail with different degrees of vascular contrast available and interchange ‘normal’ and ‘pathological’ lungs.
The Lung/Chest Phantom is moulded on a male skeleton from the neck to below thediaphragm, and is constructed from materials equivalent to natural bone and soft tissues. Inflated animal lungs are fixed to the pleural cavitiesand the pulmonary arteries are injected with a blood equivalent plastic.
Five standard pathologies are incorporated into the phantom including two contiguous 0.5 cm nodules at the tip of the first left rib and pneumonia in the right lower lobe.
RSD’s Take-Apart Pixy is the ultimate training tool for radiologists. The anthropomorphic phantom dissembles into nine parts and is light weight for easy positioning.
Take-Apart Pixy allows unlimited exposures, tolerates trainee errors and can be used to evaluate student’s positioning and imaging techniques.
The organs have been designed to accept contrast media, and radiographs are visually equivalent to human patients.
The Alderson Radiation Therapy Phantom (ART)
ART is an indispensable quality assurance tool that can be used across the entire chain of radiation treatment planning and delivery.
ART is moulded from tissue-equivalent material and follows ICRU-44 standards for both accuracy and ease of use.
ART comes in male and female versions, and breast attachments are available between 200ml and 1200ml in volume.
Wounded Willy and Damaged Debbie
RSD’s popular Wounded Willy and Damaged Debbie phantoms can demonstrate 60 traumas and pathologies, and can be positioned realistically.
This enables radiology training with unlimited exposures and is ideal for in-the-field training at hospital emergency departments or in radiology practices.
Traumas and pathologies include metallic fragment in orbit, separated fracture of frontal zygomatic suture, metallic foreign body over skull, and maniple fracture with missing bone.
