"Six members of the emergency crew at the plant have been exposed to
more than 100 millisieverts of radiation per hour, the equivalent of
getting 10 chest X-rays per hour, plant owner Tokyo Electric Power
Company said.

Tokyo Electric had raised the exposure level for emergency workers from
its previous standard of 100
millisieverts per hour to 250 millisieverts."

I never heard of any chest x-ray where you get 10 per hour with a dose of
100 mSv!

Where do they get their stuff? Are they simply oblivious to the dose units
they're reporting? Now if they said 100 mrem per bour, I could see a chest
x-ay of 10 mrem each.
