Definitions for "REM"
Keywords:  roentgen, sievert, rad, millirem, dose
A dose unit which takes into account the relative biological effectiveness (RBE). The rem is defined as the dose of a particular type of radiation required to produce the same biological effect as one roentgen of (0.25 MeV) gamma radiation.
The unit of dose equivalent from ionizing radiation to the total body or any internal organ or organ system. A millirem (mrem)" is 1/1000 of a rem.
A rem reflects the radiation dose received by the body, after accounting for the potential for harm from different types of radiation. To convert rads to rems, the number of rads is multiplied by a number that reflects the potential for damage caused by a type of radiation. For beta, gamma and X-ray radiation, this number is generally one. For some neutrons, protons, or alpha particles, the number is twenty. A millirem (mrem) is one-thousandth (1/1,000) of a rem.
