Scatter radiation, particularly Compton scatter
, causes great alarm because it is the major source of exposure to the R.T.
As the gammas traverse the magnetized core, many will Compton scatter
with electrons reducing the number of gammas exiting the polarimeter.
In the diagnostic range, there are 2 common photon interactions that occur within the patient: Compton scatter
and the photoelectric effect.
The intensity of 1% of the Compton scatter
peak ([I.sub.cs]), which was proportional to the mass of the sample, was integrated in a window of 19.80 keV to 20.40 keV.
