The energy and spatial dependences of the signal-to-noise ratio in tomography with compton backscattering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The results of Monte Carlo calculation of the ratio of fluxes of singly and multiply scattered quanta in the total signal of the detector, which registers fluxes of backscattered radiation in Compton tomography, are presented. The spatial distribution of multiply scattered quanta in narrow-collimated geometries was studied.
