Abstract: X-ray phase-contrast and dark-field imaging provides valuable, complementary information about the specimen under study. Among the multimodal X-ray imaging methods, X-ray grating interferometry and speckle-based imaging have drawn particular attention, which, however, in their common implementations incur certain limitations that can restrict their range of applications. Recently, the unified modulated pattern analysis (UMPA) approach was proposed to overcome these limitations and combine grating- and speckle-based imaging in a single approach. Here, we demonstrate the multimodal imaging capabilities of UMPA and highlight its tunable character regarding spatial resolution, signal sensitivity and scan time by using different reconstruction parameters.
