In order to have flexible computational phantoms which can be used for the calibration of specific counting geometries, a new methodology was developed to create computational 3D human body models called MaMP and FeMP - Male and Female Mesh Phantoms – based on polygonal mesh surface geometry without making use of medical images taken from human subjects. The main goal was to design new computational phantoms to overcome the limitations of the existent voxelized phantoms which were developed in a supine position and do not always provide reliable calibrations for measurements on seated people or tilted chair geometries.
