The Advanced Photon Source 1-ID beamline, operating in the 40 – 140   keV X-ray energy range, has successfully employed continuously tunable saw-tooth refractive lenses to routinely deliver beams focused in both one and two dimensions to experiments for over 15 years. The practical experience of implementing such lenses, made of silicon and aluminium, is presented, including their properties, control, alignment, and diagnostic methods, achieving ∼ 1   µ m focusing (vertically). Ongoing development and prospects towards submicrometre focusing at these high energies are also mentioned.

The design and first results of a large-solid-angle X-ray emission spectrometer that is optimized for energies between 1.5   keV and 5.5   keV are presented. The spectrometer is based on an array of 11 cylindrically bent Johansson crystal analyzers arranged in a non-dispersive Rowland circle geometry. The smallest achievable energy bandwidth is smaller than the core hole lifetime broadening of the absorption edges in this energy range. Energy scanning is achieved using an innovative design, maintaining the Rowland circle conditions for all crystals with only four motor motions. The entire spectrometer is encased in a h...

A Thomson scattering X-ray source can provide quasi-monochromatic, continuously energy-tunable, polarization-controllable and high-brightness X-rays, which makes it an excellent tool for X-ray fluorescence computed tomography (XFCT). In this paper, we examined the suppression of Compton scattering background in XFCT using the linearly polarized X-rays and the implementation feasibility of linearly polarized XFCT based on this type of light source, concerning the influence of phantom attenuation and the sampling strategy, its advantage over K-edge subtraction computed tomography (CT), the imaging time, and the potential pul...

CONCLUSION: Penetrating trauma in children and adolescents is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. There are similarities with the management of these injuries in adults, but further work is required to ensure that paediatric management algorithms are evidence based.

Abstract PURPOSE: To objectify effects of an anatomical viewing scheme on the respective correctness of (a) findings, (b) interpretations, and (c) self-assessments of readers in chest radiographs acquired in one plane and the assessment of other influencing factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In all, 20 radiologists with 3-60 months of full-time radiography experience evaluated 12 chest radiographs of varying difficulty: once with and once without using an anatomical viewing scheme with at least 1 month in between (n = 480). In consensus of 3 radiological experts (...

CONCLUSIONS: Region-dependent changes in gut transit time is associated with early NEC development in preterm pigs. How gut dysmotility is related to NEC in preterm infants requires further investigations. IMPACT: Using preterm pigs as a model for preterm infants, we show that gut transit time, using serial x-ray contrast imaging, was changed in individuals with NEC-like lesions before they showed the typical radiological signs of NEC. Thus prolonged transit time across the entire gut was recorded when NEC lesions appeared in the small intestine but not when lesions were detected only in the colon.Until now, recording...
