Abstract: The differential imaging technique is particularly suitable for the detection of small concentrations of contrasts agents for biological and medical applications in samples using X-ray radiography. In this paper, we present an application of this technique using a laser-plasma soft X-ray source combined with a bent crystal. Using a Fresnel plate as a test object, we were able to obtain spatial resolutions of the order of a few tens of microns. The use of our configuration to perform differential imaging of a test-sample at the L-2 edge of Br at 1,596 eV is finally demonstrated.
