Figure 1: Showing pictures of the humanoid phantom having outer skin like layer (a), body frame with spaces cut to simulate intercostal spaces (b) and interior filled with dense foam (c), which simulates lungs with space for lesion placement (c, arrowhead). The initial scout image obtained after placing the phantom with radioactive lesion placed within (d). Trans-axial PET/CT and CT images (e-f) show tracer activity within soft tissue attenuating lesion placed in left side of chest phantom. Targeting of lesion using semi-automatic biopsy needle (g-h) can be done using lasers, skin markers or automated robotic guidance systems.
