Early diagnosis of Breast Cancer using innovative laser-driven X-Ray sources and phase-contrast X-Ray imaging

The X-Pulse project is a collaborative R&D project targeting early, reliable, breast cancer diagnosis with lower patient dose. The consortium will build a pre-clinical X-Ray imaging prototype, based on innovative technological bricks, such as an intense X-Ray source based on ultra-fast lasers, and a novel phase-contrast X-Ray imaging approach. Expected outcomes include better breast cancer screening, early diagnosis providing less invasive treatments and better prognosis.

The XPulse project is structured around 5 teams with complementing areas of expertise: Alphanov (coordinator), Amplitude Systèmes, Celia, Imagine Optic, Institut Bergonié.

X-Pulse is funded by the Région Nouvelle-Aquitaine & FEDER.
