0 Radiation dose - Units

Radiation dose is quantified using both the conventional units system and the international system of units, or SI.

  • “Radiation exposure” is measured in roentgens (R) for conventional units or coulombs per kilogram (C/kg) in SI units.
  • “Absorbed dose” is measured in rads (rad) for conventional units or grays (Gy) for SI units.
  • “Equivalent dose” is measured in rems in conventional units or sieverts (Sv) for SI units.
  • “Effective dose” is measured in effective dose equivalents (Sv—1977 tissue-weighting factors), or sieverts (Sv) for SI units.
