I can address the importance. The LET/RBE of low energy X-rays is greater
than that for tritium. Tritium RBE is greater than unity, see the special
issue of the HPJ (Vol. 65, 1993).

Can somebody explain the regulatory requirement for Entrance Skin
Exposure measurements for non-fluoro medical x-ray machines and the
importance, frequency, and standard to compare the measurement to?
