Question what particles should I use for X ray with energy from 10kev to 70kev.

I am new to Geant4 so the question may be stupid. I read Chapter 5 in user's guide and I am still confused about what particles and process should be added for X-ray interacting with Tungsten.

For particles I know electron should be included. But what kind of particle should I use for represent X-ray? There is no such kind of photon. Should I use Gamma or opticalphoton instead? For process I think photoelectric and Compton scattering should be included. Is there any other process should be included?

Any comments are appreciated.
