A simple and accurate perfused tissue phantom would be a useful tool for biomedical research. The phantom described here is an agar-saline model that can be easily constructed. Space between finely diced pieces of agar is perfused with saline. A rotator Boekel-Orbitron® is used to perfuse the agarsaline mixture, mimicking the non-directional movement of blood. Dye injected into the phantom records the volumetric movement of saline for a set time period on the Orbitron. These data are used to determine perfusion estimates in units of g/s/mL. Experimental results can be appropriately scaled and additional modifications can be better mimic specific in-vivo conditions.
