Aims Two imaging systems have been tested, including an advanced X-ray imaging system that utilizes geometric magnification and a mobile phone imaging system. The aim of this experiment is to use resolution phantoms to determine system parameters including resolution, effective pixel sizes, magnification and other geometric parameters. Results X-ray Imaging Image set Mag. Spot size (hxw;um) Effective Px Size (um) Actual Mag.

Sensor resolution, in theory, the effective pixel size sets a lower limit on the smallest structure that can be resolved and the smallest resolvable feature scale
