Abstract
We report the design and fabrication of a carbon nanotube (CNT) based micro-resolution field emission mobile open type x-ray system for breast imaging. It can be used efficiently during the surgery of breast cancer removal to obtain accurate resection margin in partial resection of breast specimen. The obtained x-ray image of breast specimen with the proposed system shows the clear detection of micro-calcifications.
