While Data Spectrum is known as the “Home of the Jaszczak Phantom and Hoffman Brain phantom,” we also produce other phantoms and products that are blazing the trails in the medical imaging field. From torso phantoms to preclinical products, we are a comprehensive company that meets the testing and research needs of our customers.
While we specialize in PET and SPECT, we also create phantoms for combined cameras like PET/CT and SPECT/CT. We set the bar high and are an ACR Phantom partner for SPECT (“NM” often) and PET accreditation programs. Did you know DSC is also able to create custom phantoms?

Home of the Jaszczak Phantom and Hoffman Brain Phantom
While we don’t want to take away from our other amazing products, it is important to note that we are the home of the Jaszczak Phantom and Hoffman Brain Phantom. The co-founder of our company, Dr. Ronald Jaszczak, has been a pioneer in quantitative nuclear medicine imaging since 1976. A professor at Duke University, he developed the earliest SPECT imaging equipment and bridged the gap between utilizing phantoms solely in the research field to enabling medical imaging professionals the ability to accurately provide and show that the camera is working as intended. The Jaszczak Phantom and Hoffman Brain Phantom are both Dr. Ronald Jaszczak creations and some of our best selling products.

A phantom is more than just a scientific device; it is a “stand-in” for human tissue and a way to ensure that the systems and methods for imaging a human body are operating correctly. If you want to learn more about what a phantom does and how it works, take a look at the following blog.
