Production of X Rays
This chapter deals mainly with production of x rays but it also provides a brief introduction to Čerenkov radiation and synchrotron radiation (magnetic bremsstrahlung). Two types of x ray are known: characteristic (fluorescence) radiation and bremsstrahlung, and both are important in medical physics, because they are used extensively in diagnostic imaging and in external beam radiotherapy.
