Low-dose phase-based X-ray imaging techniques for in situ soft tissue engineering assessments

Biomaterials 2016 Volume 82, Pages 151–167

In tissue engineering, non-invasive imaging of biomaterial scaffolds and tissues in living systems is essential to longitudinal animal studies for assessments without interrupting the repair process. Conventional X-ray imaging is inadequate for use in soft tissue engineering due to the limited absorption difference between the soft tissue and biomaterial scaffolds. X-ray phase-based imaging techniques that derive contrast from refraction or phase effects rather than absorption can provide the necessary contrast to see low-density biomaterial scaffolds and tissues in large living systems. This paper explores and compares three synchrotron phase-based X-ray imaging techniques—computed tomography (CT)-diffraction enhanced imaging (DEI), -analyzer based imaging…
