X-ray phase sensitive imaging methods: basic physical principles and potential medical applications



X-ray phase sensitive imaging methods: basic physical principles and potential medical applications



Current Medical Imaging Reviews 6(2): 90-99



Phase sensitive imaging theoretically allows for a drastic reduction in x-ray dose while simultaneously achieving comparable or better spatial and contrast resolution compared to traditional x-ray absorption based imaging. Several techniques exist to extract the phase information from an x-ray signal, including x-ray interferometry, diffraction enhanced imaging, in-line holography, coded aperture x-ray imaging, and grating-based interferometry. The physics of each method is reviewed, along with the potential clinical applications.
