FIG. 1.

Standard daily quality assurance (QA) phantom with three implanted Beacon® transponders under the Calypso 4D array panel, positioned at the isocenter.

FIG. 2.

Steel wires of 1.6 mm in diameter and approximately 5 cm in length, tightly bundled into various weights of 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 g, from left to right. A combination of these steel bundles weighing from 1 to 144 g was used in the phantom study (other 24 g bundles were not shown in the figure for briefness).

FIG. 3.

Three models of the studied penile prosthetic devices. From left to right: Coloplast model Alpha 1, Coloplast model Titan, and AMS model 700 devices.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Dependence of Calypso localization inaccuracy from metal interference on steel wire mass. Error bars show the standard deviation of the five repeated experiments. Note that no data were presented for steel mass of 144 g or greater because the Calypso system experienced incidents of losing capability of reporting any localization or tracking value in all five repeated experiments for this mass range. The arrow indicates the metal (MP35N alloy) weight of approximately 1 g contained inside the penile prosthetic device, which has no detectable interference on the Calypso tracking system. The horizontal dashed line indicates the baseline noise level of the Calypso system.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Dependence of minimal metal interference distance to phantom center on steel wire mass. The distance was recorded when the bundled steel wires introduced interference above the baseline background noise level of 0.5 mm for the Calypso localization. Error bars show the standard deviation of the five repeated experiments. The arrow indicates the metal (MP35N alloy) weight of approximately 1 g contained inside the penile prosthetic device, which has no detectable interference on the Calypso tracking system.
