Textbook Problem

Find the radiation dose in Gy for: (a) A 10-mSv fluoroscopic X-ray series, (b) 50 mSv of skin exposure by an a emitter, (c) 160 mSv of β and γ rays from the 40K in your body.

To determine

(a)

The radiation dose for fluoroscopic x-ray series.

Explanation

Given:

Fluoroscopic x-ray series sievert is Sv=10mSv.

Relative biological effect for x-ray is RBE=1.

Formula used:

The expression can be used to calculate sievert from gray,

  Gy=SvRBE

Calculation:

The radiation dose for fluoroscopic x-ray series be calculated as,

  Gy=SvRBE

To determine

(b)

The radiation dose for an α -rays.

To determine

(c)

The radiation dose for β and γ -rays.
