A radiation conversion and radiation transport model applicable to gadolinium-exposure neutron imaging is formulated. The resultant linear optical density representation is found to be in good agreement with experiment. The distinct conversion-electron contributions thus identified confirm the supposition about the dominant mode of image formation in gadolinium-exposure neutron imaging.
