Radioactivity is measured in Becquerel (Bq) per second. 1 Bq means one disintegration per second. It is also measured in Curie (Ci)

The radiation absorbed dose is measured in Gray, rad, rem and Sievert (Sv).

Conversions for Effective Dose, Equivalent Dose, Dose Equivalent, and ambient dose equivalent
0.001 rem = 1 mrem = 0.01 mSv
0.01 rem = 10 mrem = 0.1 mSv
0.1 rem = 100 mrem = 1 mSv = 0.001 Sv
1 rem = 1000 mrem = 10 mSv = 0.01 Sv
10 rem = 100 mSv = 0.1 Sv
100 rem = 1000 mSv = 1 Sv (Sievert)
1000 rem = 10 Sv ...more
