We present a system for diagnostic imaging of x-ray sources using a compound refractive lens. Such a system can be built at a low cost, yet image at resolutions of 2 μm or better. The essential components of the system are the source to be imaged, a compound refractive lens and imaging detector (either electronic or film). In addition, spatial and spectral filters can be added to improve resolution and a laser alignment system can be used to rapidly align the source, lens and camera.
