Given a monoenergetic beam of photons, how are the interaction cross sections used to calculate a) the dose rate to a small volume of tissue, and b) the exposure rate.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I assume this question references the below equations:

[tex]

\dot{D} = \theta ( \frac{μ}{ρ} )_{med} * E_{ab}[/tex]

[tex]

\dot{X} = \theta ( \frac{μ}{ρ} )_{air} * E_{γ}[/tex]
