The energy of ionizing radiation absorbed per unit mass by a body, often measured in rads.
- The severity of symptoms depends on the absorbed dose of radiation by the exposed area of the body.
- The dose equivalent in rems is numerically equal to the absorbed dose in rads multiplied by the quality factor, which, for most medical radiation, is one.
