Description

An x-ray radiographic image is generated by both uncollided and scattered photons. The uncollided flux contribution to the image can be estimated straightforward using the attenuation coefficients of the materials used in the radiography. The scattered flux contribution however, is usually accounted for using Monte Carlo techniques or by solving the Boltzmann transport equation for photons [1]. Both of these approaches are computationally expensive and hence can not be incorporated in radiography simulation models for practical limitations.
