Title: 3-dimensional x-ray imager

Abstract

The invention utilizes one exposure without moving parts to provide multiple x-ray views of an object. It relies on a 3D detector, which can be a stack of film plates, and a specified focusing x-ray optic. The x-ray optic, discussed below, allows collection of x-rays from a localized volume, just like an ordinary optical lens, and the stacked film plate, or other 3D detector design, allows collection of the multiple focal plane information from one line of sight.
