X-ray grating interferometer for biological imagin

        Together with collaborators, we has built a grating-based phase-contrast (GPC) imaging system at BL13W1 beamline,SSRF (Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility). The setup has comparable density and spatial resolutions as compared with similar setups at some leading synchrotron facilities around the world. In applying the setup for biomedical applications, we has established close collaborations with medical researchers. Exploiting the high density and spatial resolutions of the imaging setup, we has investigated the micro-angiogenesis process in tumor development and the non-invasive identification of metastases at early stage. The work has been published on J.Synchrotron Rad,19, 821-826(2012).  ( PDF )
