Abstract

Inverse Compton scattering (ICS) X-ray sources are of current interest due to their novel features that enable new methods in medical and biological imaging. As a compelling example of such a possibility, we present an experimental demonstration of single shot inline phase contrast imaging using the ICS source located at the BNL Accelerator Test Facility. The phase contrast effect is clearly observed in the images obtained. Further, its qualities are shown to be in agreement with the predictions of theoretical models through comparison of experimental and simulated images of a set of plastic wires of differing composition and size. We also display an example of application of the technique to single shot phase contrast imaging of a biological sample.
