They cover digital image processing; essentials of medical X-ray physics; tomography; radiobiology, radiotherapy, and radiation protection; phase contrast radiography; and object reconstruction under non-ideal conditions.
In this paper, we introduce the slow feature analysis and propose a fully-automated mitotic event recognition method for cell populations imaged with time-lapse phase contrast microscopy.
The modular design is compatible with many accessories for clinical research, fluorescence, phase contrast, and darkfield applications.
For example, the following imaging techniques are currently supported: X-ray fluorescence (XRF), ptychography, diffraction, differential phase contrast and X-ray absorption spectroscopy.
This clearance allows the Arterys product to be used in clinical settings for the quantification of cardiac flow, which includes 4D flow and 2D Phase Contrast workflows, and cardiac function measurements.
This added to the role of MRI, which was already heavily relied upon in the study of intracranial venous drainage using 2D and 3D time of flight (TOF) and phase contrast (PC) sequences for noncontrast imaging [4, 5] and contrast-enhanced MRV (CE-MRV) [6].
To obtain an experimental value of dissipated energy during the nanoindentation process, in order to compare it to the theoretical model, one can proceed in two different manners: force-distance curves or phase contrast images.

Mocella and his colleagues decided to try a method called X-ray phase contrast tomography that had previously been used to examine fossils without damaging them.
An article published Tuesday in Nature Communications describes the use of x-ray phase contrast tomography to obtain 3-D scans.
Focusing on physics and hardware configurations rather than algorithms and software, they consider absorption-based X-ray imaging, X-ray phase contrast imaging, photoacoustic imaging and tomography, diffuse optical imaging, acoustical imaging, multimodality imaging, and three-dimensional in vivo microscopy.
