Paper Abstract

Quantitative in-line phase-contrast imaging methods seek to reconstruct separate images that depict an object's absorption and real-valued refractive index distributions. An understanding of the statistical properties of images in planar and tomographic implementations of X-ray phase-contrast imaging is required for optimizing system and algorithm designs using task-based measures of image quality. In this work, the statistical properties of phase-contrast imaging are investigated by use of analytical and computer-simulation methods.
