The determination of scattered radiation from intraoral X-ray examinations and its projected effects on image signal-to-noise ratio
The Dental Journal of Nihon University
Scatter functions and relative depth-dose are computed for a variety of X-ray spectra and exposure geometries of dental interest. The method takes into account the attenuation produced by the lead-foil backing in intraoral film packets and makes use of an analytical model to compute the zero-area depth-dose based on known spectra and attenuation coefficients. The resulting data show that the relative amount of scatter at the film plane for a fixed exposure at the tissue surface is significantdoi:10.2334/josnusd1959.23.195 fatcat:45vi2hhxhvgspgw2hswevekdmu
