flu·ence (H),

(flū'ens),
A measure of the quantity of x-radiation in a beam in diagnostic radiology, either particle fluence, the number of photons passing an aperture of unit cross-sectional area, or energy fluence, the sum of the energies of the photons passing through a unit area. Compare: flux.
