About the X-Ray Phantom:
The X-Ray Phantom is a real encased human skeleton that is able to be positioned to be used for x-ray training. Students are able to strengthen their skills with the phantom by being able to see the end result of an actual x-ray. Normally, students train by positioning one another but cannot radiate each other due to radiation exposure.
