Novel X-ray System

Conventional medical X-ray images are adequate for distinguishing between regions with significantly different density such as that between bone and surrounding tissue. The contrast however, is not sufficient to distinguish regions of similar density, such as tumours within healthy tissue etc. STFC’s patented X-ray technology that simultaneously obtains absorption and refraction images overcomes the limitations of normal X-ray systems.
