The finding concluded that the annual radiation dose of the models tested exceeded the safety standard for processed products of 1 millisievert (mSv) per year, the office said.
To put it in perspective, one sievert is 1,000 millisieverts (mSv), and one millisievert is 1,000 microsieverts.
The internationally accepted maximum limit of radiation that an individual member of the public is allowed to be exposed to as a result of the operation of a nuclear power station is 1 millisievert (0.001 sievert) in a year.
(TEPCO) brought the plant to a state of "cold shutdown," meaning the reactors can be safely kept cool and that radiation exposure is limited to 1.0 millisievert per year at the site's boundary.
GE Healthcare plans to invest in innovative low-dose technologies such as DoseWatch, a new multi-modality dose monitoring solution; Veo, an image reconstruction technology allowing CT imaging under 1 millisievert with profound clarity; dose-alert upgrades; free radiation safety iPad applications and low-dose online seminars offering education and CE credits to healthcare professionals globally; the Innova interventional imaging systems designed to maximise dose efficiency, reduce doses and simplify dose management; and low-dose ASiR technology that is used on over 1,000 systems for more than 10m patient exams.
A specific goal of this conference is to identify the technological steps and associated research required to reduce the radiation dose from routine CT exams to less than 1 mSv (millisievert, the unit used to measure the amount of ionizing radiation absorbed by human tissues).
According to the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre ( BARC), the annual acceptable dose of radiation from non- natural sources is 1 millisievert. At the spots with 5000 times more background radiation, a person would receive this annual dose of one millisievert in just two hours, Raina said.
Male astronauts could stay in space for a total of 900 days in their lifetime, and female astronauts for 800 days, based on a calculation that they would be exposed to 1 millisievert of space radiation a day, it says.
The maximum safe exposure for people is 1 millisievert per year.
The radiation exposures were relatively low -- between 4.4 millisieverts and 0.006 millisievert -- as the operation of the No.
The highest amount of radiation detected accounted for less than 0.01 percent of annual dose for humans or 1 millisievert.
Doses to consumers from radioactive discharges incorporated into the food chain were well below the statutory UK principal annual dose limit to members of the public of one milliSievert (mSv).
