Microscopic properties of various radiologic contrast materials are studied for weak to strong surface interactions in model fruits. These interactions are imaged under various ionic environments as present in multiple, common fruit systems. Low and high X-ray energies may show different imaging noise reflective of scattered radiation from iron, manganese, and other metal ions in fruits. This will be compared with MRI image noise on similar systems obtainable from collaborating MRI research students (see Bleidis Buitrago et al, in this poster session).


This poster was presented at the 33rd Semi-Annual Dr. Janet Liou-Mark Honors and Undergraduate Research Scholars Poster Presentation, Dec. 3, 2020. Mentors: Profs. Subhendra Sarkar and Zoya Vinokur (Radiologic Technology and Medical Imaging).
