Medical Definition of REM

1. The conventional unit of dose equivalent. The dose equivalent in rem is numerically equal to the absorbed dose, D, in rad multiplied by the quality factor Q. 1 rem = 0.01 sievert. (See sievert, rad). Note: for most medical applications involving X-ray or gamma emitters, the numerical values of the absorbed dose in rad, dose equivalent in rem and exposure in R are roughly equivalent numerically.
