In the present work a method of bremsstrahlung generation in a betatron during multiple passes of the accelerated electrons through a thin target-converter is explored with the help of statistical modeling. The results are obtained on a basis of experimentally measured field distributions for the betatrons: MB-6 and B-35. The data of electron orbit dynamics and characteristics of bremsstrahlung field are given depending on parameters of the electron's dumping onto the target and sizes of the target.
