Tissue attenuation is a term used in the radiological profession to
denote when an xray beam or nuclear medicine radioactive drug cannot
penetrate overlying soft tissue because of it's density.  An example
would be like trying to see into a room through a sheer curtain.  You
sould see many things but the details would be fuzzy and not visible
at all.  Sometimes increasing
the xray beam power, increasing the time used to take an image or
increasing the radioactive drug can alleviate this problem.
