Electron scattering data on nuclear targets are used to to model nuclear binding corrections to the scattering of neutrinos from neutrons and protons in nuclei. Recently, Coulomb corrections have been applied in the analysis of electron scattering experiments from nuclear targets at Jefferson lab. These corrections account for the changes in the energy of initial and final state electrons in the Coulomb field of the nucleus. Coulomb corrections were not applied in the analysis of earlier experiments at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. We investigate a variety of interactions of initial and final state electrons in the nucleus that are not currently accounted for. We find that that the effect of radiation of additional photons by electrons bending in the field of the nucleus before and after an interaction with a bound nucleon is also significant.
