Simulation of small-angle x-ray scattering from collagen fibrils and comparison with experimental patterns.

Abstract

Simulation of small-angle x-ray scattering from collagen in healthy and cancerous breast tissue may reveal detailed information on the structural changes in collagen. Collagen fibril is modelled as a cylinder with axially periodic step-function electron density, and packing is approximated by placing the cylinders in small hexagonal bundles. The intensity… (More)
