  1. Radiotherapy Physicist here…

    To get this to work you want to throw MeV electrons at a bremstrahlung target, not keV. then you get KE to X-ray conversion efficiency of 30-50% instead of 1%.

    These are linacs, of course, not simple static potentials.

    Some therapy X-ray machines can produce 24Gy per minute at one metre over 20×20 cm field.

    There are also (lower dose rate) therapy machines in vans

    These will need to be hooked up to an industrial power supply from a building, though…
