Abstract

This catalogue presents a large number of photon spectra, inside a cubic (30 cm side) and a cuboid (40 x 20 x 40 cm3) water or lung phantom, calculated using the Monte Carlo program KASTENSPEC. The beams considered are mainly those relevant to X-ray diagnosis and nuclear medicine. The spectra are shown in tabular form for 10, 20 or 50 keV steps for different depths between the entrance surface and the exit surface and for one or two off-axis distances. The alteration of the spectrum with depth, field size and phantom size is discussed.
