Abstract
Measurements of low contrast resolution are most important. Xyron material .( stylene grafted poly-phenyl ether made by Asahi Medical Co.) can have an arbitrary CT number near to CT number of water. Phantoms with xyron-bar-in-water were made. But these phantoms showed different CT number between several CT scanners. They had energy dependency of CT number and were not suitable to measure low con-trast resolution. Then phantoms with xyron-bar-in-xyron were made. These phantomsshowed better differences between CT scanners than the former phantoms. These phantoms are most suitable to measure performance of low contrast resolution. CT number of xyron material decreases as X-ray tube voltage decreases. But differences of xyron bar contrast do not change so much.
