Abstract [en]

A Monte Carlo computer program has been developed for the simulation of X-ray photon transport in diagnostic X-ray examinations. The simulation takes account of the incident photon energy spectrum and includes a phantom (representing the patient), an anti-scatter grid and an image receptor. The primary objective for developing the program was to study and optimise the design of anti-scatter grids. The program estimates image quality in terms of contrast and signal-to-noise ratio, and radiation risk in terms of mean absorbed dose in the patient. It therefore serves as a tool for the optimisation of the radiographic procedure. A description is given of the program and the variance-reduction techniques used. The computational method was validated by comparison with measurements and other Monte Carlo simulations.
