None physics processes producing photons in a Linac head 

Forum: Medical Applications

From: Maura E.M. <Maura E.M.>

I am trying to identify the keywords identifying the processes that produce photons inside a Linac head. Please, correct me if I am mistaken:

"eBrem" --> Bremsstrahlung photons from primary electrons

"compt" --> Compton (incoherent) scattering

"Rayl" --> Rayleigh (coherent) scattering

"photonNuclear" --> semi-prompt gamma rays and neutrons/protons

"annihil" --> photon procuced by the recombination of electron and positron

Not interested in Fluorescence rays due to their very low energy.

Any comment and/or suggestion is welcome.

Thank you so much.

Best regards, maura
