Real-time radiology in the microscale

We present several examples of the applications of a novel microradiology approach based on phase contrast enhancement using unmonochromatized synchrotron X-rays. The approach-mostly implemented and realized at the International Consortium on Phase Contrast Imaging and Radiology (ICPCIR) Beamline at the Pohang Light Source in Korea and on the NSRRC B01A wavelength shifter beamline in Hsinchu, Taiwan, allows the real-time analysis of a variety of phenomena on the micron and submicron scale due to the efficient use of the high-synchrotron X-ray intensity and the coherence. The practical examples concern the examination and investigation of microscopic inhomogeneities, local morphology, etc., in materials science, industrial technology, medicine, the life sciences and other areas.
