X-ray imaging technology is a useful and leading medical diagnostic tool for health care professionals to diagnose disease in human body. Carbon nanotube based X-ray source, which we have developed in this study, could be also useful and supply integrated diagnostic X-ray imaging tool in diagnosis. Conventionally, thermionic type of tungsten filament X-ray tube is widely employed in the field of biomedical and industrial application fields. However, intrinsic problems, such as poor emission efficiency, low imaging resolution, and high electrical energy consumption etc., may cause the limitation of using the X-ray tube. To fulfill the current market requirement, specifically for medical diagnostic field, we have developed rather a portable and compact carbon nanotube based X-ray device in which microfocus high imaging resolution can be feasible.
