Abstract

Absorption X-ray imaging is a well-established technique. However it is still a challenging task in its search for a compromise between the need for high spatial resolution and high contrast and the request to keep the dose delivered to the patient within acceptable values. New imaging techniques are under investigation, like the use of new X-ray sources, phase contrast imaging or K-edge imaging. Monte Carlo or analytic simulations are often the best way to test and predict the effectiveness of these techniques. A new simulation tool for X-ray imaging will be presented together with some applications to the characterization of new X-ray sources, in-line phase contrast effect and angiographic K-edge imaging. Simulation results will be compared also with experimental data.
