The central image shows the mean scattering signal in the range corresponding to 20–30 nm of a 400 μm-thin tooth slice (specimen 100818). Scattering patterns were acquired in a 50 μm × 50 μm raster pattern. Four selected scattering patterns from radial enamel, dentin-near enamel, enamel-near dentin and pulp-near dentin are shown. Prominent differences in signal orientation and shape are apparent. Intensity in a selected q-range is plotted as function of the angular position and approximated by a cosine
