Combining x-ray scatter and tomographic information: A collaboration with Rapiscan Systems Ltd and the Home Office

Nicola Wadeson (University of Manchester)

Frank Adams Room 1, School of Mathematics, Alan Turing Building,

Rapiscan System's Real Time Tomography (RTT) x-ray cone beam CT machine used in airport security records a high level of scattered photons due to an unconventional geometry. Here we discuss the effects and possible uses of the scattered signal, followed by a description of the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation used to emulate the system and the proposed scatter correction methods.
