Phantom Design Lab

Here, we develop, test and market new clinical training phantoms, ultimately to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

How we can help

Development of phantoms

Contact us if you have an idea that you need help producing. Our dedicated team of experts is on hand to help you find the right solution.

Testing and Qualification

We test your equipment

At CAMES Phantom Design Lab, you can bring your equipment in for testing and qualification at different stages of its life. We have experience in testing both prototypes and usability tests of finished equipment. Both for start-ups as well as larger companies.

We can also offer a form of collaboration that involves exploring a specific topic through thesis projects or similar. The latter is a good opportunity for you to acquire hard-to-reach knowledge at relatively low cost and risk.

Robot-assisted phantoms: full set of abdominal organs

The Phantom Design Lab and CAMES Engineering have a strong focus on the development of robot-assisted phantoms. They are both complex but also simple in their design. The development process focuses on collaboration between physicians and engineers to ensure the most realistic, anatomically correct and practical design for the model. We aim to create a highly realistic environment with clear indications of the procedure being practised - and where individual doctors can perfect their craft.

At the same time, we strive to form a versatile and complete set of abdominal organs, so that each doctor can tailor a procedure to his or her needs. To meet these needs, CAMES Phantom Lab, together with CAMES Engineering, uses a wide range of tools. Precisely to be able to cope with any task. This includes segmenting CT scans for high accuracy and realism, 3D CAD programs to model in 3D and construct molds, and 3D printers to manufacture the products.

Robot-assisted pyeloplasty model

CAMES Engineering often collaborates with students in the production of products for undergraduate projects and theses. This model was made together with Magnus Meyer Møller from DTU Health Technology, where a model was made for the Robot-assisted Pyeloplasty procedure. Two models were produced. The first model was an internal stenosis, where there is a constriction on the ureter, while the second model consisted of an external compression, where blood vessels impede the downflow of urine, which defends the accumulation of urine in the renal pelvis.

The process consisted of producing an anatomically correct model and testing whether the model was adequate for the procedure. Watch here.

Development of simulation phantoms for gastroscopy

In collaboration with Rigshospitalet, CAMES organised a tailor-made simulation training course in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. CAMES Engineering assisted the course by producing phantoms that added silicone plates with ulcers for endo-clip insertion and silicone plates with polyps for cold-scar endoscopic resection. Finally, an esophagus (esophageal stricture) was fabricated to train balloon-assisted enteroscopy. In this procedure, a balloon is inserted into the esophagus and inflated to stretch out the constricted area.

Background:

Symptoms and signs arising from the upper part of the digestive tract are often vague and imprecise. Therefore, it may be necessary for the doctor to perform a gastroscopy. A diagnostic test that allows the doctor to look inside the patient's stomach. The instrument used to perform this is a flexible telescope, also called a gastroscope. There have been rapid developments in gastroscopic capabilities. Today, various procedures can be performed through the gastroscope, such as removing neoplastic polyps and stopping bleeding from a wound.

Development of phantoms

Shall we build a solution together?

Phantom Design Lab is a specialized clinical design and development unit run by CAMES Rigshospitalet. We design and produce medical phantoms for teaching and simulation training, so that medical students, nurses and clinical professionals get the optimal realistic hands-on training experience. We do this in an evidence-based way, so that we always support and ultimately increase the quality and safety of various patient treatments.

We also focus on material science and recycling in line with sustainability and price-oriented procurement principles. We can create everything from simple training modalities like sym mats, to highly realistic models for robotic surgery, to patient-specific simulators based on e.g. CT or MR scans. We also make simple phantoms for ultrasound scans. In other words, we accommodate needs-based ideas and collaborate with clinical practitioners, educators, researchers and innovative peers.

Phantom Design Lab is always looking for new ways to expand our phantom repertoire and range of collaborators. We welcome new contacts, thoughts and ideas.
