X-ray tomography is the construction of a three dimensional image from two dimensional projections taken at different orientations (usually with phase contrast or absorption contrast imaging). The tuneability of synchrotron X-rays make it possible to provide increased contrast images, and the coherent nature and high intensity of synchrotron X-rays have led to significant developments in this field, particularly in phase tomography which in the past has required extremely complex instrumentation.
