The effect of molecular interference on coherent scattering

Aysun Böke

The effect of molecular interference on coherent scattering is studied for human tissues (liver, kidney, muscle and fat). The coherent scattering cross sections are computed by numerical integration. The calculation of molecular form factors is performedas function of the momentum transfer variable formulated with x=sin (q/2)/l in the presence of small concentrations of different elements constituting tissue. It is seen that theoretical values of molecular form factors can be used in the region (x ≥ 1 Å-1) where there is no experimental data. Because of the lack of data on calculation of coherent scattering of tissues, the results of this study will provide valuable knowledge in literature.
