"Lobster-eye" X-ray Inspection Device can see through the wall

The Handheld “Lobster-Eye” X-ray Inspection Device (LEXID) provides through - the - wall focusing and acquisition of backscattering photons from a hidden object irradiated by a cone beam from a low power X-ray generator. The X-ray optic focusing, combined with the X-ray detector significantly lowers the exposure dose, greatly enhancing image resolution. At the emitter side, the collimating optics increases flow of X-rays for deeper penetration through objects of interest, with the same X-ray tube.
