Figure 4
X-ray images of the distal end of the rib recorded using synchrotron X-rays. (a) X-ray image recorded using synchrotron X-rays at Z ≃ 5 m. (b) Absorption-contrast image recorded using synchrotron X-rays at Z ≃ 0 m. The cartilage sample with surrounding soft tissue packed in a transparent plastic bag was used for imaging. The sample has a small fracture in the middle. The fractures running vertically are clearly seen in (a), and much less so in (b). The white curves overlapping the cartilage image as shown in (a) were caused by the soft tissue lump on the sample surface.
