High energy synchrotron X-ray scattering was developed for reconstruction of specimen cross-sections. The technique was applied to a model specimen of cortical bone containing a capillary tube of silicon, and reconstructions were produced with either full diffraction rings or texture-related subsets of a given ring. The carbonated apatite (cAp) 00.2 and 22.2 reconstructions and the Si 3 1 1 reconstructions agreed with absorption-based reconstructions from the measured X-ray transmissivity recorded during diffraction pattern acquisition and from reconstructions produced subsequently of the same specimen using a commercial microCT (microComputed Tomography) scanner.
