ASSESSMENT OF HOMOGENEITY OF X-RAY BEAM PRODUCED BY X-RAY MACHINES WITHIN ENUGU METROPOLIS

INTRODUCTIONA homogeneous x-ray beam can be defined as a beam that contains photon of only one energy as compared to heterogeneous x-ray beam containing several photons of energies1. When a homogeneous x-ray beam passes through a medium, its intensity falls exponentially with the distance covered. Raising the tube current will increase the intensity of the X-ray beam and no change in the homogeneity of the X-ray beam. Increasing the beam filtration will reduce the intensity of the X-ray beam ...
