PURPOSE Estimation of Compton attenuation and the photoelectric absorption coefficients were explored at various depths. METHODS A new method was proposed for estimating the depth based on the convolution of two exponential functions, namely convolution of scattering and primary functions (CSPF), which the convolved result will conform to the photopeak region of energy spectrum with the variable energy-window widths (EWWs) and a theory on the scattering cross-section. The triple energy… CONTINUE READING
