Sievert; Sv:

The derived SI unit of dose equivalent, explained as the absorbed dose of ionizing radiation multiplied through internationally-agreed-upon dimensionless weights, as different kind of ionizing radiation cause distinct types of damage in living tissue. The Sv, such as the Gy, has units of J/kg.
