The present invention relates to X-ray imaging. In order to provide a facilitated and space-saving X-ray imaging apparatus, an imaging arrangement (10) for X-ray imaging is provided that comprises a lower movable support arrangement (12) movably holding an X-ray source (14), and an upper movable support arrangement (16) movably holding an X-ray detector (18). The lower movable support arrangement is configured to be mounted to a floor (20), and the upper movable support arrangement is configured to be mounted to a ceiling (22). The lower movable support arrangement comprises a lower boom (24) rotatably attached to a lower base (26). The lower boom comprises two rotatably connected lower arms (28), and the lower base is rotatable around a vertical axis (30). The upper movable support arrangement comprises an upper boom (32) rotatably attached to an upper base (34). The upper boom comprises two rotatably connected upper arms (36).
