We use coherently scattered X-rays to measure the molecular composition of an object throughout its volume. We image a planar slice of the object in a single snapshot by illuminating it with a fan beam and placing a coded aperture between the object and the detectors. We characterize the system and demonstrate a resolution of 13 mm in range and 2 mm in cross-range and a fractional momentum transfer resolution of 15%. In addition, we show that this technique allows a 100x speedup compared to previously-studied pencil beam systems using the same components. Finally, by scanning an object through the beam, we image the full 4-dimensional data cube (3 spatial and 1 material dimension) for complete volumetric molecular imaging.
