Dose conversion coefficient

The quantity dose conversion coefficient (e(50)) makes it possible to convert becquerel (Bq) to sievert (Sv) in the case of radiation from internal activity (A):

E(50) = e(50)×A

E(50) = committed effective dose (in Sv)
e(50) = dose conversion coefficient (in Sv/Bq)
A = activity (Bq)

The value of the dose conversion coefficient strongly depends on the nuclide, the chemical properties of the radioactive substance, and the method of intake.
