roentgen-equivalent-man

roent·gen-e·quiv·a·lent-man (rem),

a unit of dose equivalent to that quantity of ionizing radiation of any type that produces in humans the same biologic effect as 1 rad of x-rays or gamma rays; the number of rems is equal to the absorbed dose, measured in rads, multiplied by the quality factor of the radiation in question. 100 rem = 1 Sv.
