In terms of accumulated dose, it's like getting a whole-body CT scan once every five or six days," said Cary Zeitlin, a principal scientist at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio and lead author of the paper on the findings.
5 keV X-rays produced by the decay of iodine-125, yielding an accumulated dose of 105 mGy.
We view with alarm the actions of the HPCSA against the background of the growing concerns of an alerted world towards a radiation health issue that has two disconcerting components: (i) the startling increase in radiation-induced cancers in the young, and (ii) the effect and final outcome of accumulated dose on the human genetic pool.
Dependence of accumulated dose in ESR dating on microwave power: a contra-indication to the routine use of low power levels.
Even more importantly, a second underlying assumption is that the effects of accumulated dose are linear and that there is no threshold--a lot of little doses accumulated over time is as bad as one large dose received all at once.
For frequent flyers and aircrew the accumulated dose could be significant.
Changes in the spectral responsivity of different kinds of diodes, such as UV silicon, GaP, GaAsP, PtSi, diamond, and GaN, were measured for a large range of the total accumulated dose from an [F.
EKOR has been laboratory tested to an accumulated dose of 10 gigarads without loss of physical properties.
Their analysis indicates that total accumulated dose isn't the best gauge of radon's danger.
All BNC radiation detectors offer two critical operation modes: the first mode incorporates a 1-9 strength indicator scale for simple analysis of sources present, and the second mode provides exposure rate readings and accumulated dose information commonly found in dosimeters.
We also found that an infant who had been breast-fed for 1 year had an accumulated dose 6 times higher than a 1-year-old infant who had not been breast-fed.
