Doppler 403 & Mini-Doppler 1430 Flow Phantoms

Ensure years of consistent QC measurements and high quality diagnostic imaging.

  • Collaboratively designed to better serve your needs 
  • Go from storage to use in less than 10 seconds


Gammex collaborated with clinical and academic thought leaders to develop our patented HE (High Equivalency) Gel and the first portable Doppler Flow Phantoms in the world.

The Doppler 403 and Mini-Doppler 1430 Flow Phantoms are second generation devices based on the proven, original designs, and developed with ongoing customer input.

  • Precision pulsatile flow mode allows you to reliably test system velocities
  • HE (High Equivalency) Gel is patented and proven 
    • Helps ensure all transducers and system settings are fully tested across the entire frequency range from 2 to 18 MHz
    • Response of attenuation-to-frequencies over 8 MHz supports accurate axial resolution and penetration depth representative of human tissue1,2

From routine QA to education and complex research

Doppler 403 Flow Phantom

  • The gold standard in Doppler Ultrasound QA
  • Measure axial & lateral resolution from the surface to 16 cm deep


Mini-Doppler 1430 Flow

  • Ideal for cardiology and musculoskeletal (MSK) applications
  • Measure small parts resolution
  • Lightweight at less than 10 lbs. (4.6 kg)


Sono Transducer Holder 

The Sono Transducer Holder Accessory fits any Gammex phantom including the Sono Family and Doppler Flow phantoms. 

  • Place a transducer in a precise location in the holder for reproducible tests over time 
  • Support the transducer cable with the cable hook


Common Highlights

  • New blood mimicking fluid formulation
    • Represents laminar and parabolic flows (velocity-dependent)3
    • Increased viscosity and decreased Reynolds number
    • No need to ever purchase or store blood mimicking fluid
  • Rugged, self-contained, battery-operated
  • Easy to use—turn it on, push a button & start testing
  • HE Gel can be rejuvenated and your phantom re-validated any time to strengthen your investment
  • Exceed ACR, ECR, AIUM and other program requirements

Rejuvenation Will Protect Your Investment

Our Doppler Flow and Sono (B-Mode) phantoms are the only ultrasound phantoms on the market that can be rejuvenated and re-validated. Implementing a rejuvenation program can extend the life of the phantom to 10+ years.
