With this half-day workshop, we aim at providing a general overview of X-ray phase-contrast imaging XPCI techniques, with an emphasis on those available in a laboratory setting. This session will cover an historical overview, fundamentals of projection imaging and phase retrieval, introduction to XPCI Computed Tomography and an outlook on more advanced approaches. This first workshop is designed to be a higher-level introduction to the topic. It is meant to be a first point of contact with these X-ray imaging techniques for an audience that might have little or no prior experience. The intention is to follow up with a series of events that will be tailored on a specific topic and provide in-depth explanations and hands-on training.

The event is supported by Advanced X-ray Imaging Group, Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, University College London and National Research Facility for lab X-ray Computed Tomography (NXCT).
