X-ray Phase Contrast Group

Bio-medical X-ray imaging of soft tissue

X-ray imaging can be improved by utilising the wave-optical properties to extract images of complementary contrast. Normal x-ray imaging relies only on attenuation in the sample, but information about phase shift and scattering of the x-rays can be computed when special conditions are fulfilled.
