There is no exact "lethal dose" per se, but a significant difference from background radiation can prove detrimental to your health.

a dose of approximatly 5,000 millisieverts (approx 5 grays) would kill about half of those recieving it within a month. different people have different resistances to radiation, leading to this difference
