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 α emitter. (c) 160 mSv of β and γ rays from the 40K in your body.

To determine

(a)

The dose in Gy for a 10 mSv fluoroscopic X-ray series

Explanation

Given:

The energy radiation for fluoroscopic X-ray =1 RBE

  Sv=10×103Sv

Formula used:

The does in Sv is

  Gy=SvRBE

Calculation:

Substituting the value

  dose=<

(b)

To determine

The dose in Gy for a 50 mSv to skin exposer by an α emitter

(c)

To determine

The dose in Gy for a 160 mSv to β and γ rays
