Abstract

X-ray phase imaging enables excellent visual confirmation of light element materials and soft tissues that are difficult to detect using conventional X-ray absorption imaging techniques. The authors are developing X-ray phase imaging technology for industrial applications. We have built an evaluation device to develop applications for commercialization. This article reports on those developments and provides imaging examples.
