absorbed radiation dose

Absorbed dose (also known as total ionizing dose?, TID) is a measure of the energy deposited in a medium by ionizing radiation per unit mass. It is equal to the energy deposited per unit mass of medium, which may be measured as joules? per kilogram? and represented by the equivalent SI unit, gray (Gy), or the antiquated CGS units, rad and rep?. The absorbed dose depends not only on the incident radiation but also on the absorbing material: a soft X-ray beam may deposit four times more dose in bone than in air, or none at all in a vacuum.
