X-ray phase tomography with X-ray Talbot interferometry (XTI) is reported. XTI employs two transmission gratings and generates a contrast corresponding to the differential phase shift caused by a sample. Quantitative phase measurement and tomographic image reconstruction with XTI are demonstrated for biological samples. Finally, the possibility of medical applications of XTI is discussed, based on the advantage of XTI that divergent and polychromatic X-rays are available.
