Scattered radiation

Portions

of radiation which, after an interaction with material, reduce their

direction and, in general, also their energy (Compton effect, Compton

scattering).

Scattered radiation occurs in connection with all

x-ray recording processes. The amount of scattered radiation depends on

the radiation energy used (higher energy – more scattered radiation) and

the material subjected to radiation (higher atomic number – less

scattered radiation).
