A simple Monte Carlo program for simulation of X-ray transport
MetadataShow full item record
A Monte Carlo-based program for treatment of photon transport, restricted to photon energies used in medical diagnostics, is developed. Only the photoabsorption and Compton scattering of photons are taken into account, a justifiable assumption for the energies involved. We can simply separate contributions of reflection events with one, two, three, or more successive collisions of X-rays with electrons of the target. This gives us insights and information about photon transport which otherwise would be inaccessible. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
