Abstract

This study aims to give data concrning phantom material made in Iran i'rom a natural rubber which is used for obtaining calibration data for patient dose measurements in nuclear medicine applications of radionuclides for therapy and diagnosis. Is showed to be a tissue equivalent material cheap (25000 Rials the material itself and 35000 Rials the process of casting and moulding etc.), easily available and can be moulded into the irregular shapes of the human body and is very convenient for developing countries where the availability of the primary materials of the recently introduced phantoms are not so easy.
