Paper Abstract

Degradation of the radiologic image is caused by the finite size of X-ray sources. This effect is often the principal limitation on the resolution of a radiologic imaging system. If it were possible to reduce the source size, the contrast and resolution of an X-ray image would be improved. Unfortunately, X-ray tube construction considerations and the need for sufficient radiation output necessitate relatively large X-ray sources.
