We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This first prototype is just a solid block with holes (of differing depths) and a ramp are cut out. It is intended to be used as a test tube holder and "phantom" for experiments in a magnetic resonance imaging device. The ramp allows one to measure slice thickness or position.
If to be used as intended (for MRI in a water bath), best to be printed with 100% infill. Otherwise, there will be significant susceptibility artifacts ( http://www.mritutor.org/mritutor/suscept.htm ).
(See Phantom 2 for comment about susceptibility artifacts, and the images of this phantom.)

So what's this mean?
We're sure SCaruthers would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
