The farther away that people are from a radiation source, the less the absorbed dose. 
With the SIRAD, materials used for the card and wrapper are close enough to tissue equivalent that they indicate close to the actual radiation absorbed dose (rad) at the surface of the body where the dosimeter is worn, over a wide range of gamma-ray, x-ray, and beta-ray energies.
The currently accepted dose for this pest in the US is 150 Gy (APHIS 2006), but this may not be the minimum absorbed dose that could prevent adult emergence of 3rd instar Mediterranean fruit fly in fruit as evidenced by several studies in Table 1.
An absorbed dose measures the amount of energy deposited in tissue as ionizing radiation passes through it.

At optimized conditions, > 94% degradation was achieved both in case of UV (exposure time 100 min, TiO2 concentration 5.93 g/L, H2O2 4.39%, pH 6.50 and shaking speed 110 rpm) and gamma radiation (12.69 kGy absorbed dose in the presence of 4.65% H2O2) treated samples and water quality parameters (WQP) also improved significantly.
In addition, the absorbed dose to the tumor is not known in this approach and although controversial, there is a risk of stunning with dosimetric administrations of I-131 that may alter tumor/lesion biokinetics during subsequent treatment (16).
