Sievert
Special unit name for the organ dose and the effective dose; symbol: Sv; named after Rolf Sievert (1896 to 1966), a Swedish scientist who rendered outstanding services to the establishment and further development of radiation protection. 1 Sv = 100 Rem.

Sievert
The sievert (symbol: Sv) is the SI derived unit of dose equivalent. It attempts to reflect the biological effects of radiation as opposed to the physical aspects, which are characterised by the absorbed dose, measured in grays. It is named after Rolf Sievert, a Swedish medical physicist famous for work on radiation dosage measurement and research into the biological effects of radiation. The equivalent dose to a tissue is found by multiplying the absorbed dose, in grays, by a dimensionless 'quality factor' Q, dependent upon radiation type, and by another dimensionless factor N, dependent on all other pertinent factors. In terms of SI base units: 1 Sv = 1 J/kg = 1 m2/s2 = 1 m2·s–2

Sievert
De sievert (symbool Sv) is de SI-eenheid voor de equivalente dosis ioniserende straling waaraan een mens in een bepaalde periode is blootgesteld, en is gelijk aan 1 J/kg. De sievert is afhankelijk van de biologische effecten van straling. Dit in tegenstelling tot de natuurkundige effecten van straling, waarvoor de grootheid geabsorbeerde dosis wordt gebruikt, uitgedrukt in de eenheid gray, symbool Gy. De sievert is genoemd naar de Zweedse medisch fysicus Rolf Sievert.

Sievert
In the International System of Units, the derived unit of radiation dose; the dose received in one hour at a distance of 1 cm from a point source of 1 mg of radium in a 0.5 mm thick platinum enclosure.
