Thomson scattering X-ray sources have many features which are of relevance for several applications: the main one is the capability to produce intense, quasi-monochromatic, tunable X-ray beams, after collimation, still with a reasonably small size apparatus. Applications to medical physics are straightforward, in particular in mammography where dose control in screening programs is the main relevant issue. An optimal choice of the X-ray energy to image the breast will result in a best image quality and hence will lead to a dose reduction.
