Compton and Rayleigh scattering cross sections for bone, bakelite, polycarbonate, nylon, lucite, polystyrene, polyethylene, water, glycogen, fat, calcium hydroxyapatite and protein are calculated for various monoenergetic Kalpha X-ray energies covering the angular region from 0 to 180 using non-relativistic, relativistic, relativistic modified and molecular form factors and the non-relativistic incoherent scattering function. The scattered radiation from these materials will be very useful to develop a semianalytic model to investigate the potential applications of X-ray scatter imaging. The scatter model can be used as a tool for designing and optimizing X-ray imaging system. However, one particular area of interest is in Monte Carlo simulation of photon transport in applications to medical physics and radiography.
