In x-ray transmission imaging, these photons are much more likely to be detected by the image receptor. In addition, for a given scattering angle, the fraction of energy transferred to the scattered photon decreases with increasing incident photon energy. Thus, for higher energy incident photons, the majority of the energy is transferred to the scattered electron. For example, for a 60-degree scattering angle, the scattered photon energy (Esc) is 90% of the incident photon energy (Eo) at 100 keV but only 17% at 5 MeV.

Due to the strong influence of the particle’s mass, bremsstrahlung production by heavier charged particles such as protons and alpha particles will be less than one millionth of that produced by electrons. The energy of a bremsstrahlung x-ray photon can be any value up to and including the entire kinetic energy of the deflected electron. Thus, when many electrons undergo bremsstrahlung interactions, the result is a continuous spectrum of x-ray energies. This radiative energy loss is responsible for the majority of the x-rays produced by x-ray tubes and is discussed in greater detail in Chapter 6.

For example, following the Compton interaction of an 80-keV photon, the minimum energy of the scattered photon is 61 keV.
