CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF X-RAY DIFFRACTION

Abstract
X-ray diffraction analysis is a commonly used tool for identifying the 
internal composition of materials. For the past 15 years the Medical 
Radiation Physics group at University College London has investigated 
the application of this technique to clinical problems to improve 
diagnosis. This talk will focus on the application to breast cancer 
diagnosis. Significant differences in x-ray diffraction profiles have 
been observed between the various healthy and diseased states of breast 
tissue. These differences are being exploited to develop a mammographic 
x-ray imaging system that will exhibit high contrast and tissue 
characterisation.

Sono tutti (anche studenti e dottorandi) invitati a partecipare.
