Correlation between the dose of radiation and onset of cutaneous changes in our study can be appreciated by the appearance of skin lesions at a minimum radiation
dose 500cGy while maximum 7000cGy.
The inherent radiation sensitivity of many drug molecules makes it impossible to radiation sterilize many of the important emerging combination drug/device products using the minimum radiation
sterilization doses established on the basis of achieving an SAL of [10.
We were also told at the time that we could sit on these DU penetrator rods for five years and still be below minimum radiation
Prerequisite is the minimum radiation
dose for patients and staff.
