By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week -- Current study results on Electromagnetic Research have been published. According to news reporting out of Hyogo, Japan, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "A three-dimensional (3D) X-ray tomographic micro-imaging system has been developed. The optical system is based on a scanning-imaging X-ray microscope (SIXM) optics, which is a hybrid system consisting of a scanning microscope optics with a one-dimensional (1D) focusing (line-focusing) device and an imaging microscope optics with a 1D objective."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute, "In the SIXM system, each 1D dataset of a two-dimensional (2D) image is recorded independently. An object is illuminated with a line-focused beam. Positional information of the region illuminated by the line-focused beam is recorded with the 1D imaging microscope optics as line-profile data. By scanning the object with the line focus, 2D image data are obtained. In the same manner as for a scanning microscope optics with a multi-pixel detector, imaging modes such as phase contrast and absorption contrast can be arbitrarily configured after the image data acquisition. By combining a tomographic scan method and the SIXM system, quantitative 3D imaging is performed."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Results of a feasibility study of the SIXM for 3D imaging are shown."
