What three things must you have in order for x-ray production to occur? 1. Source of electrons (mA) 2. force of electrons (KVP) 3. Anode (something to stop the electrons) These must occur in a vaccum
What three possibilities can occur once the x-ray tube and interacts with matter? 1. Change in direction (scatter) 2. Absorbed 3. Pass through with out any interferance
Explain the 5 types of x-ray interactions with matter 1. Coherent- < 10 K inter with the all atom absorbed takes in no energy 2. Compton - x ray range keeps 2/3 of energy 3. Photo elec - ion pair. Cascade effect. 4. pair prod - 1.02 mev positron and negatron 5. photodis - 10 mev inter w nu nu fragm
Which x ray interactions are within diag. range? Coherent, Compton and Photo electric
