## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello I had two doubts, I know that medical physicist when working with x-rays use the formula D(x)=alfa*mu*I(x)/rho

where D(x) is the dosis absorbed

Alfa is the factor of the energy that damages

Rho is the density

mu is the absorbtion coefficient

My doubt is the following: Does this formula work for all interactions? (compton, fotoelectric efect, pair production and coherent scattering)

Another doubt, does photodisintegration occurs when working with x rays?

where can I find information on the topic? Thanks a lot
