Abstract

The two main phase-contrast reconstruction methods are phase difference and complex difference. The signal-to-noise ratio properties and relative advantages of the two techniques are discussed. It is argued that each processing method has applications in which it is superior, and guidelines are provided to determine those applications. It is demonstrated theoretically and experimentally that only the complex-difference method is well suited for processing phase-contrast slabs with use of a projection dephaser gradient.
