Some biological effects have a definite threshold value below which no effect is observed. Due to variation in the human species, the exposure required may be larger or smaller than what is listed below. Some threshold effects seen are:
  • CATARACTS:   600 - 800 rad acute exposure
  • ERYTHEMA:   200 - 300 rad acute exposure
  • FIBROSIS:   Thousands of rad acute exposure
  • HEMATOPOIETIC CHANGE:   100 rad acute exposure
