Multi-TEDDI 3D X-Ray Imaging
This invention relates to a tomographic energy dispersive diffraction imaging system (TEDDI). Whilst conventional tomographic imaging systems rely on absorptive or spectroscopic data of the subject, TEDDI provides diffraction data in combination with either absorption or spectroscopic data. As an example, the diffraction pattern of a sample will sh...
