What is the dose in Sv in a cancer treatment that exposes the patient to 200 Gy of γ rays?

To determine

To find:

The dose in Sv that exposes cancer patient to 200 Gy of γ rays.

Explanation

Formula used:

The relation between sievert (SV), Gray (Gy) and the Relative Biological Effectiveness (RBE) is given by the following equation

  Sv=Gy×RBE

Calculation:

The Relative Biological Effectiveness for γ ray is 1

RBE=1

Substitute the value of RBE as 1 and using 200 Gy, we get,

  S
