Sample text

The equation can also be used to estimate the fraction of the photon beam intensity (number of photons incident per unit area per second), exposure rate (milliroentgen [mR] per hour), or air kinetic energy released per unit material (kerma) rate (milligray [mGy] per hour) that traverses a barrier. I = Io e − μx Note that this will be less than the beam intensity on the other side of the barrier, which will include not only the beam without interaction but also the portion of the beam that has been forward scattered.

Visible light has energy slightly less than 1 eV. X-rays and gamma rays are in the energy range from several thousand eV (or keV) to tens of millions eV (or megaelectron volts [MeV]). It is interesting to note that the resulting frequencies for x-rays and gamma rays (between 10−15 to 10−10 m) is on the same order as the nucleus and the atom, respectively, and thus it would reasonable that these entities would interact on the nuclear and atomic levels. The energy range of x-rays and gamma rays overlap substantially.

However, in the energy range of most interest in nuclear medicine, from several tens of kiloelectron volts to approximately 1 MeV, the two most prominent modes of photon interaction are the photoelectric effect and Compton scattering. Thus the rest of this section will specifically discuss these two interactions. In the photoelectric effect (Fig. 3-12), the photon interacts with an atomic orbital electron, leading to the liberation of the electron and a subsequent electron shell vacancy. The liberated electron, referred to as the photoelectron, is ejected with a kinetic energy equal to the energy of the incident photon minus the binding energy associated with the electron’s initial orbital shell.
