The application of the X pinch x-ray source for phase-contrast x-ray radiography of low absorption materials is demonstrated. The X pinch is a source of radiation in the 1-10 keV x-ray band with extremely small size and short pulse duration. The small source size provides high spatial coherence of the imaging x-ray beam, enabling it to be used to image low absorption, low contrast objects with excellent spatial resolution. Images with spatial resolution better than 3 micrometers of exploded, insulated 25 micrometers W wire and biological objects are presented. The advantages of the X-pinch over other x-ray sources are discussed.
