Prototype Preclinical in Vivo Phase-contrast CT Scanner

Caption: Together with industry partner Bruker microCT / Skyscan, a team of university researchers led by scientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen has developed a preclinical x-ray scanner (left) with enhanced contrast for soft tissue imaging. Mounted in a movable gantry inside the scanner are (right) an x-ray source, a detector, and a three-grating interferometer for phase-contrast imaging.
