Assessment of quality control parameters for an X-ray tube using the monte carlo method and unfolding techniques

Abstract

Quality Control (QC) parameters for an X-ray tube such as Half Value Layer (HVL), homogeneity factor and mean photon energy, can be obtained from the primary beam spectrum. A direct Monte Carlo (MC) simulation has been used to obtain this spectrum. Indirect spectrometry procedures such as Compton scattering have been also experimentally utilized since… (More)
