Measuring Radioactivity

Measuring Radioactivity involves utilizing different conversion factors. 

Measuring Radioactivity

Concept #1: Units of Radiation Measurement

Example #1: The initial responders to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster were exposed to 23 Sv of radiation. Convert this value to rem.

Practice: A typical chest X-ray exposes a patient to an effective dose of 0.09 mSv. How many Rad is this?

Practice: Two technicians in a nuclear laboratory were accidentally exposed to radiation. If one was exposed to 5 mGy and the other to 9 rad, which technician received more radiation?

Practice: A solution of iodine-131, a radioisotope used in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease, is found just prior to administration to have an activity of 1.08 x 106 Bq/mL. If 2.57 mL were delivered intravenously to the patient, what dose of I-131 ( in µCi) did the patient receive?
