Question 5: Image Processing

August 2016 (Published on Jul 2019)

Problem 1

  1. Calculate an expression for $ \lambda_n^c $, the X-ray energy corrected for the dark current.

$ \lambda_n^c=\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d $

  1. Calculate an expression for $ G_n $, the X-ray attenuation due to the object's presence.

$ G_n=-\mu(x,y_0+n*\Delta d)\lambda_n $

  1. Calculate an expression for $ \hat{P}_n $, an estimate of the integral intensity in terms of $ \lambda_n $, $ \lambda_n^b $, and $ \lambda_b^d $.

$ \lambda_n=(\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d)e^{-\int_0^x \mu(t)dt} \hat{P}_n=\int_0^x \mu(t)dt=-log\frac{\lambda_n}{\lambda_n^b-\lambda_n^d} $
