© 2022 Elsevier LtdThe purpose of this study is to examine the clinical radiation effects on patients with various stents. Several previous researches focused on the mechanical and physical features of the stents, but there have been few studies that focus on the interaction with radiological and clinical radiation. For stent material analysis, the ANSYS package program was employed. These materials and models are often built in three dimensions for three different types of stents made of three various materials. Estimates of blood pressure and thermal radiation were explored, as were the effects of non-ionizing radiation. Furthermore, the radiation attenuation characteristics of stent samples are investigated. The mass attenuation coefficient values are computed using MATLAB code over a large energy range of 0.015–15 MeV, and the findings are validated using theoretical WinXCom results. To determine the gamma-ray attenuation performances of the studied stent samples, variables such as the mass attenuation coefficient (MAC), half-value layer (HVL), tenth-value layer (TVL), mean free path (MFP), effective atomic number (Zeff), exposure build-up factor (EBF), and energy absorption build-up factor (EABF) are computed. Effective removal cross-sections (ΣR) of stent samples were acquired to determine the capacity of stent samples to stop fast neutrons. Finally, the ability of stent samples to stop charged alpha and proton particles was evaluated utilizing mass stopping power and projected range parameters. The discovery demonstrates that S3 has the best attenuation as well as the best proton, alpha, and gamma radiation attenuation capability.
