Paper Abstract

At present, an analysis of 3D bone structure is a significant problem in osteoporosis diagnostics. It's necessary to invent new devices with spatial resolution less then 0.2 mm for these purposes. A Kumakhov lens allows to focus X-rays with energy of 40-50 keV into a spot of 0.2 mm in diameter and is a suitable tool for such devices. Currently, IRO has developed such lenses. The lens parameters and preliminary results of scanning various objects by the VolumeScope with Kumakhov lens are reported.
