The objective of the study presented in this paper is the analysis of influence of different buildup factor forms on a simulated radiographic image. Simulated radiographic images are obtained by means of the ray-tracing technique. Scattered photons are modelled using the generally accepted geometric progression form, linear form and tabulated data of buildup factors. Simulated images were compared to the reference results obtained by Monte Carlo calculation. The best agreement to Monte Carlo simulated images is achieved for the geometric progression form of buildup factor.
Key words: simulation of radiographic image, Monte Carlo, buildup factor, ray-tracing
