A Java-platform software for the evaluation of mass attenuation and mass-absorption coefficients for body tissues and substitutes

T. J. Odedele, A. A Okunade, O. L. Asaolu


A computer software was written for the evaluation of mass attenuation coefficient (μ/ρ) and mass energy-absorption coefficient (μ /ρ) for body tissues and substitutes of arbitrary elemental composition and en percentage-by-weight of elemental constituents using the Java development platform which could run on any operating system (Windows, Linux, Unix etc.) that ports Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Results obtained from the program for values of μ/ρ and μ /ρ were in agreement with those reported in literature. en

Keywords: Mass Attenuation Coefficient, Mass Energy-absorption Coefficient, Body Tissues Substitutes, Computer Software.
