Rayleigh (yellow) and Compton (blue) scattering from a 10 micron wide linearly polarised monochromatic X-ray beam penetrating a tissue equivalent medium. Note variation in scattering intensity with azimuthal angle. The viewing angle shifts by 15 deg per frame. Calculated with the Monte Carlo code libraries EGS4/LSCAT and displayed using EGS_Windows.
