Example text

In addition, as electrons pass through matter, their charge interacts with the negative charges of the atomic orbital electrons. , positive beta particles) this is an attractive force. These interactions lead to excitations and ionizations of the orbital electrons. The electronic excitations may lead to the emission of electromagnetic radiation with a wide range of energies, including visible or ultraviolet radiation, and may depend on the structural considerations, such as whether the atoms are incorporated into a crystal.

This can be of particular use when evaluating administration of beta-emitting radiopharmaceuticals for therapeutic applications. As the emitted beta particles pass through the patient, they lead to the emission of bremsstrahlung radiation that can be imaged. In general, the result is a verylow-quality image compared to that of direct emission of x-rays or gamma rays, but it can be helpful in attaining a general impression of the beta-emitting radiopharmaceutical distribution. In addition, as electrons pass through matter, their charge interacts with the negative charges of the atomic orbital electrons.

This deacceleration is typically realized as the electron undergoes electronic or coulombic interactions with the positively charged nucleus as it passes through matter. The magnitude of the bremsstrahlung production increases linearly with the kinetic energy of the incident electron and the Z number of the target material on which the electron is impinging. Thus bremsstrahlung x-ray production is more likely to occur at higher energies and with high Z targets. As a result, radiographic systems generate x-rays by directing an energetic electron beam into a tungsten (Z = 74) target.
