X-ray Phase Contrast Imaging is a new way of generating high definition x-ray images. Contrast is due to refraction effects rather than due to absorption, with the former being up to three orders of magnitude larger than the latter for low absorbing details. As a consequence, a high image quality can be achieved also for objects that have until now been considered x-ray transpearent. The images of the cranesbill flower are a beautiful example of the strength of X-Ray Phase Contrast Imaging.
