.... This study applied X-ray diffraction to the skin tissue-covered Ti. Characteristic X-rays of Mo K α were used and the X-rays diffracted from the Ti were detected through the covering skin tissue. The X-ray absorption by skin tissue is large under the diffracted X-rays detected in low angles because...
