A rendition of information about rendition
The core meaning of "rendition" is "the act or result of rendering", taking us back to the verb "to render", which derives from the Latin rendere, meaning "to give back".
Render is a verb with many senses, but the relevant ones for us now are "to produce, hand over, surrender, or submit". The noun "rendition", which first appeared in English in the early 17th century, originally meant "the surrender of a garrison, place, or thing", a bit later including the surrender or forcible return of a person; such as, escaped slaves were often "rendered" (returned to their owners) by northern U.S. states before the Civil War.
Subsequent senses of "rendition" developed by the 19th century focused more on the "give" sense of "render", and "rendition" in the popular speech of the 20th century usually meant a musician's or a singer's "treatment" of a song.

Because of her work in the X-ray department at the hospital, Ms. Smith frequently used the thermoluminescent dosimetry device to ensure that she remained uncontaminated by the radioactive emissions.2. The determination of the amount of lucidity to which a material has been exposed: Usually thermoluminescent dosimetry is accomplished by heating the material in a specially designed instrument which relates the amount of luminescence coming from the material to the amount of exposure.
Ionizing radiation; such as, x rays, alpha rays, beta rays, and gamma rays, remains undetectable by the senses, and the damage it causes to the body is cumulative, depending on the total dosage of thermoluminescent dosimetry received.
Dr. Jonas used the thermoluminescent dosimetry concept to obtain an estimation of the amount of radioactive elements to which the X-ray staff might have received.
