Paper Abstract

A simulation program for x-ray methods is discussed. Computational algorithms for definition of x-ray sources, interactions of x-rays with complex objects and formation of images are developed from first principles. Subject geometries can be accessed from CAD definitions or from CT sets. The principles underlying the image formation process are introduced and images in industrial and medical x-ray applications are displayed.
