X-RAY SOURCE MODEL FOR MODERN DIAGNOSTIC X-RAY SETS
Published: 29 Jul 2017
Abstract: This paper presents the model of a static diagnostic X-ray set. The model takes into account such parameters as a high anode voltage, total beam filtration, anode voltage pulsations, field dimensions and the type of a diagnostic investigation. X-ray spectra of a tube were generated using the “TASMIP”. The ICRP voxel phantoms were adapted for modeling one of the most frequent diagnostic procedures of a chest in order to obtain the profiles of absorbed dose distributions from the developed X-ray source model.
Keywords: x-ray radiation, x-ray tube, voxel phantom, monte-carlo modeling, dosimetry
