DETERMINATION OF RADIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS OF SOME ACTIVE PHARMACEUTICAL INGREDIENTS USING WINXCOM SOFTWARE IN THE ENERGY RANGE 1KeV TO 100KeV
Keywords:Effective Atomic Number, Electron Density, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient’s, Winxcom, Pharmaceutical, Mass Attenuation Coefficient
The effective atomic number, electron density and mass attenuation coefficient of some selected active pharmaceutical ingredients such as Diclofenac Sodium, Femotidine, Alprazolam, Amiodar, Amiodarone, Ciprofloxacin, and Nimesulide have been calculated over the energy range from 1 keV to 100 GeV for total and partial photon interactions by using WinXCom. The obtained data shows that the change in mass attenuation coefficient and electron density varies with energy and chemical composition of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API’s) in drugs. The results in the variation of photon interaction with energy and effective atomic number of the API’s in drug are shown in the logarithmic graphs.
