Caption: The top image shows a top and side view of a 3-D-reconstructed phantom object made of gels and other materials that mimic human tissue. The background of this phantom mimics normal breast tissue, while several objects embedded within the material mimic blood vessels and tumors. The bottom image shows two slices of images of a reconstructed phantom taken with the new device. The location of five objects are indicated with arrows: objects 1 and 2 mimic blood vessels, while objects 3-5 mimic tumors.
