cerebral parenchyma, trunk and cerebellum with attenuation factors remaining intact.
Attenuation is the reduction in the total number of x-ray photons remaining in the beam after passing through a given thickness of material. It is the result of X-rays interacting with matter and being absorbed or scattered. The thicker the body part being radiographed, the greater the attenuation.
Hope it helps!
