Abstract: 

The effects of multiple scattering in X-ray Compton scatter densitometry is discussed. A mathematical expression for double scattering intensity is derived. A reduction of about 50% in the observed discrepancy between the Compton density and the Archimedes density is achieved. A Compton scatter densitometry equation which includes both the incoherent and coherent scattering cross-sections is proposed.
