With the high-brightness, microfocus MetalJet tube, the scientists at KTH demonstrated the ability of laboratory phase-contrast CT in resolving the soft-tissue anatomy and microanatomy in a mummified hand at sub- 10 µm resolution, which is at the cellular-size scale. The imaging methodology used in this study shows its potential in doing non-invasive histology in studies of ancient soft-tissue.
