Title: X-Ray Phase Contrast Imaging (XPCI) System

Abstract

Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) and Carestream Health, Inc. (CHI) collaborated on the development of a grating-based X-ray Phase Contrast Imaging (XPCI) system at Sandia. The purpose of the agreement was to share research and development knowledge, resources, and capabilities in the advancement of XPCI that would be mutually beneficial to CHI and Sandia. In the course of this agreement Sandia designed and built an XPCI apparatus including opto-mechanical design, source and x-ray detector selection, software interface, hardware assembly, and system alignment. Data acquisition and image reconstruction were demonstrated at both CHI and Sandia. XPCI is a new imaging modality that enables non-destructive inspection of low density materials not previously possible with conventional x-ray. The technique fills a capability gap valuable to both the industry partner in their technical portfolio and in national security applications important to Sandia and the DOE mission space.
