Abstract:

The mass collision stopping power (dE/ρdx)col, the mass radiative stopping power (dE/ρdx)rad and the total mass stopping power of electrons in the energy range of (0.01 – 1000) MeV has been calculated for Blood, Bone and Adipose Tissue. The results of the present work for the collision stopping power of electrons in Blood, Bone and Adipose Tissue are in good agreement with the standard results given by ESTAR program. The radiative stopping power of electrons in the same energy range is also calculated using a modified equation, and the results are found to be in agreement with the standard published values. The employed modified equation used to calculate the radiative energy loss of electrons is valid in the energy range of electrons from (0.01–1000) MeV and gives accurate results. As the results of total stopping power calculation are concerned, they are found in good agreement with the published results, where the error is less.
