Kinetic Energy Released
per Unit Mass. Kerma is a dose variable. Kerma K is
the quotient of dEtr and dm; whereby dEtr is the sum of the starting
values of kinetic energies of all charged particles released by indirectly
ionizing radiation from the material in a volume element dV, and dm
is the mass of the material in this volume element. All indications
for a Kerma must mention the reference material (i.e. the material dm).
The SI unit of the kerma is gray (Gy).
