Dose equivalentUnits Type ⤴
Equivalent dose or radiation dosage is a dose quantity used in radiological protection to represent the stochastic health effects (probability of cancer induction and genetic damage) of low levels of ionizing radiation on the human body. It is based on the physical quantity absorbed dose, but takes into account the biological effectiveness of the radiation, which is dependent on the radiation type and energy.

Absorbed dose, does equivalent, and specific energy all have the same dimensionality.
