Exposure. This is the amount of ionization produced by photons in air. Since it is impossible to directly measure the absorbed dose in tissue, the measurement of radiation is performed in air. 08 × 109 ion pairs). It is measured in coulombs per kilogram (C/kg), although the old unit of the roentgen (R) is also commonly encountered. Roentgen (R). 58 × 10−4 coulombs of electrical charge (in the form of ions) in one kilogram of air. C/kg. In normal air conditions, this is the amount of radiation that produces one coulomb of electrical charge (in the form of ions) in one kilogram of air.

02 MeV; below this, pair production will not occur. The probability of pair production occurring increases as Z increases. 23). 4 Coherent Effect (= Rayleigh Scattering, = Thomson Scattering) Here, an electron is scattered when an electromagnetic wave or photon passes close to it [21]. This type of scattering is explained by the waveform of the electromagnetic radiation. 24). The wave/photon only interacts with one electron in Thomson scattering, while it interacts with all of the electrons of the atom in Rayleigh scattering.

The resulting dose is called the equivalent dose, and it is measured in sieverts (Sv), although an older unit, the rem (roentgen equivalent man), is often used too. 3) H = equivalent dose (Sv) WR = radiation-weighting factor (no unit) D = dose (Gy) 1 Sv = 1 J/kg = 100 rem The roentgen and C/kg are only used for photonic radiation (X-rays and gamma rays), not for particulate radiation. The energies of therapeutic or diagnostic gamma rays and X-rays are in the kilovolt (kV) or megavolt (MV) range, while the energies of therapeutic electrons are in the megaelectronvolt (MeV) range.
