Abstract

X-ray Talbot interferometry is attractive as a method for X-ray phase imaging and phase tomography for objects that weakly absorb X-rays. Because X-ray Talbot interferometry has the advantage that X-rays of a broad energy bandwidth can be used, high-speed X-ray phase imaging is possible with white synchrotron radiation. In this paper, we demonstrate time-resolved three-dimensional observation with X-ray Talbot interferometry (namely, four-dimensional X-ray phase tomography). Differential phase images, from which a phase tomogram was reconstructed, were obtained through the Fourier-transform method, unlike the phase-stepping method that requires several (at least three) moiré images to be measured sequentially in order to generate one differential phase image. We demonstrate dynamic observation of a living worm in three dimensions with a time resolution of 0.5 s, visualizing a drastic change in the respiratory tract.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Experimental setup (side view) of four-dimensional X-ray phase tomography with a Talbot interferometer consisting of a phase grating (G1) and an amplitude grating (G2) and white synchrotron radiation. The inset show the calculated flux density at the sample position.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Procedure for the reconstruction of a four-dimensional phase tomogram movie: (a) differential phase image ( Media 1); (b) sinogram corresponding to the position indicated by the dashed line in (a); and (c) phase tomogram reconstructed from the portion indicated by the box in (b). A movie of the phase tomogram is generated by shifting the box along the sinogram.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Phase tomograms of the head half of a living larva of nokona regalis at 10-slice (127-μm) intervals just after the start of exposure. All phase tomograms are given sequentially in Media 2.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Rendering views of the phase tomogram of the living larva of nokona regalis at 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 s after the start of exposure to white synchrotron radiation. Because the beam size was smaller than the whole body of the worm, its head part (lower row) and tail part (upper row) are shown. Real-time movies of the four-dimensional phase tomograms are presented in Media 3 and Media 4, respectively.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Surface-rendering views of the tubular and pod-like features just after exposure (left) and after 4.9 s (right). The view at 0 s from different directions is seen in Media 5. The time evolution of the features is shown in Media 6.

Fig. 6
Fig. 6

X-ray Talbot interferometer with the function of a bandpass filter. The system consists of three gratings (G1, G2, G3), and G2 and G3 must be amplitude gratings. The set G1–G2 functions as a energy filter and the set G2–G3 is an Talbot interferometer.
