Differential X-Ray Absorption JS Model
written by Michael R. Gallis
The Differential X-Ray Absorption JavaScript Model provides a qualitative exploration of how X-rays interact with varying material properties and how this difference can produce contrast in an X-ray image.  For a typical medical diagnostic, images are created when X-rays from a source penetrate an object and then expose a film. This simulation shows how different materials in the X-rays beam produce the contrast that generates the detail of the image.

The Differential X-Ray Absorption JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
