Sample text

Slight deviations from a homogeneous beam profile can be compensated for by specially formed filters mounted on the X-ray tube and by detector calibration. The next paragraphs give a brief explanation of the physical mechanism that leads to inhomogeneous object illumination. Generally, two effects are responsible for a directional characteristic of the effective X-ray beam. As discussed above, bremsstrahlung is produced by dipole radiation that shows the specific Hertzian antenna characteristic. Fast electrons accelerated with Ua = kV have a velocity of roughly % of the speed of light, meaning that relativistic effects emerge.

2 Fundamentals of X-ray Physics Fig. . a Due to Compton scattering the patient becomes a source of radiation and organs outside the region of examination are subjected to X-rays as well. Radiation protection must be designed on the basis of scatter diagrams, b and c, for a particular CT system The discussion of the mass attenuation coefficient with respect to issues of radiation protection shows how important it is to know the physical mechanisms of X-ray photon attenuation. The physical principles of attenuation are different for diverse biomaterials.

However, on the other hand, the spatial distribution of the attenuation coefficient μ is the main focus of diagnostic interest. The gray-value differences in CT images represent distinct material composites and densities of the organs. The normal CT image shall be seen as standard, as radiologists learn, and any variation of that standard is potentially pathologic.   2 Fundamentals of X-ray Physics Fig. .
