Abstract: Imaging different bone sites for medical education requires the formation of bone-equivalent materials that mimic bone density. We investigated an economic imaging composition that characterizes bone density in imaging for quality assurance and educational purposes. Four different compositions were tested to reveal the best composition in simulating bone density in X-ray imaging. Hydrated lime was discovered to be the most suitable because it is durable (stiff and does not crumble), easy to source and process, and attenuates imaging X-rays enough to resemble real bone. Hydrated lime provides a significantly better phantom than the other combinations used.
