>Mike, the issue of when and at what dose level absorbed dose and equivalent dose quantities should be used was at least partially addressed in an answer to question #8542 on the HPS Ask the Experts web site at http://hps.org/publicinformation/ate/q8542.html.  
>George Chabot

Excellent, sorry I missed this. George is definitely one of "the best" who I happened not to ask about this. Some of his critiques of my draft HP textbook appear in the book and on my teaching slides each semester. So the answer is perhaps '0.1 to 0.5 Gy'?
