Most of the standards in Table 1 place specific requirements on the strength of the radiation field used for testing, typically defining it at the reference point of the detector through a measure of exposure rate (expressed in [micro]R/h)1 or ambient dose equivalent
rate (H*(10), expressed in units of [micro]Sv/h).
In order to measure the annual effective dose equivalent
, conversion coefficients associated with the absorbed dose coefficients in the air are used, the amount of 0.
deviations from mean count rate ([DELTA]R), dose equivalent
(D;), deviations from mean dose equivalent
([DELTA]D) and percentage deviations from mean (%[DELTA]) for the 10 locations of the college campus environment are displayed in Table 1.
Eric had a dose equivalent
to 190 years of background radiation.
1) In the 3 months preceding the competition concerned, he had taken a daily dose equivalent
to 40 mg synephrine, 400 mg caffeine, and an unspecified amount of tyramine and octopamine.
Conversion factors can be used to estimate what the effective dose equivalent

The analysis provided a value for deep dose equivalent
The amount of exposure, the dose, and the dose equivalent
are used to indicate how much damage may occur to an individual exposed to radiation.
A gradual decrease in dose and/or dosing interval of dexaxamethasone every 3-7 days, in an attempt to reach a physiologic dose equivalent
to 20 mg of cortisol per day (i.
In contrast, the Perchlorate Study Group, an industry consortium that has worked with the EPA and the DOD, proposed a much looser reference dose equivalent
to 200 ppb.
A single abdominal CT scan exposes patients to a radiation dose equivalent
to 100 to 800 chest x-rays, according to a February 2010 report released by the FDA, "Initiative to Reduce Unnecessary Radiation Exposure from Medical Imaging.
