Comparison of Images Obtained by DEI and Refraction-Contrast Imaging. by N.Yagi, R.Lewis & C.Hall (PDF in English)
Refraction-enhanced imaging experiments at BL20B2
A hairless rat was imaged. This image was reconstructed from scanned images. The images were recorded with a "Beam Monitor 4" with a C4880-75 cooled CCD camera.
This is a comparison of images with short and long distance between the rat and the detector. "A" is with a short distance (absorption image), "B" is with a long distance (refraction image).
