Neutron spectra and dose equivalents calculated in tissue for high-energy radiation therapy.
The calculated values of absorbed dose rate, radium equivalent activity, the external hazard index and annual effective dose equivalent have been found higher for smaller grain sizes except for one sample (X174) where absorbed dose rate, radium equivalent activity and annual effective dose equivalent were calculated to be slightly higher for grain sizes <2 mm and >1 mm as compared to grain sizes <1 mm and >0.5 mm.
Radiation dose limits for permissible dose equivalent is less than1 mSv/y and if the number is multiplied by 100, it shows the percentage of people at risk in the area.
