The front connection to either the prostate or urethra.2. The top to take a bladder trocar or for drainage.3. The back wall for providing tissue, if necessary, for measuring pressure or the insertion of electrodes.4. An opening for the plug connector for draining the contests of the bladder with the pertinent shut-off and drain hose.All endoscopic operations can be practised on the phantom using Ultrasound or Lasers. The phantom is also suitable for various experimental examinations.
