Preclinical x-ray dark-field radiography for pulmonary emphysema evaluation.

Pulmonary emphysema is a widespread disorder characterized by irreversible destruction of alveolar walls. The spatial distribution of the disease, so far, could only be obtained using an X-ray CT scan, implying a high patient dose. X-ray scattering on alveolar structures is measured in the dark-field signal. The signal is dependent on the size of alveoli and therefore, a combination of absorption and darkfield signal is explored for mapping the distribution of emphysema in the lung on x-ray projection images. In this study three excised murine lungs with pulmonary emphysema and three control samples were imaged using a compact, cone-beam, small-animal x-ray dark-field scanner with a polychromatic source. Statistical analysis of the results, based on a combination of transmission and darkfield signals, revealed a distinct difference between emphysematous and control samples. Subsequently, the distribution of emphysema was mapped out per-pixel for the lungs and showed good agreement with histological findings.
