Paper Abstract

Three problems in medical imaging may be solved by use of Kumakhov optics: suppression of the radiation scattered in a phantom for improving the image contrast; increasing the spatial resolution for early diagnostic of a cancer; decrease of the patient irradiation dose. For solutions to these problems we used the polycapillary raster of d equals 5 cm, consisting of capillaries (Pb-containing) with diameter of channels 10 microns. Such systems permit to solve above mentioned problems.
