9) For comparison with medical diagnostic imaging procedures, the organ/local tissue dose to the breast from routine mammography is about 3 mGy (3 milligray
, or 3/1,000 of a gray), to the stomach from a typical abdominal CT scan is about 20 mGy, and to the colon from a Barium enema is about 15 mGy.
The risk of brain tumours rose threefold after an absorbed dose to the head of 50 to 60 milligray
- a unit of absorbed radiation.
On average, women with large breasts screened on a small detector received almost 5 milligray
(mGy) of radiation, which exceeds the American College of Radiology guidelines of 3-4 mGy or less for a standard two-view mammogram.
The NRPB recommends that "any procedure that delivers doses to the fetus of some tens of milliGray
This placement results in a value that describes the absorbed dose to air (air kerma) in milligray

Estimated doses ranged from zero to more than 2,800 milligray
(mGy), with an average dose of 186 mGy per subject.

1) For radiation such as x-rays and gamma rays, a mSv is the same as a milligray
Relevant submultiples of the gray are the centigray (cGy), which equals 1 rad, and the milligray
(mGy), which equals 100 millirads (mrads).
