ICRU - REPORT 46

Photon, Electron, Proton and Neutron Interaction Data for Body Tissues

active, Most Current
Organization: ICRU
Publication Date: 1 January 1992
Status: active
scope:

Soft tissues include adipose tissues, brain, breast (including component tissues), heart, liver and muscles (skeletal), which includes the connective tissue, blood vessels, blood, lymph, etc., generally associated with striated muscle. Skeletal tissues and calculi include cortical bone, breast calcifications, cholesterol gallstones and various types of urinary (renal) stones. The first tabulation in the report provides elemental composition, mass and electron densities of the complete set of body tissues. This is followed with a tabulation (184 pages) of the photon, electron, proton, and neutron interaction data. These include mass attenuation coefficients, electron mass stopping powers, electron mass scattering powers, proton stopping powers and neutron kerma factors.
