Abstract

Ionizing radiation of the medium through which it passes is high-energy radiation that works to ionize the medium through which it passes due to the beam’s collision with atoms. The medium leads to the expulsion of some electrons Atoms and the formation of ions in the middle. Of these rays are elementary particles Such as electrons, protons, neutrons, and alpha rays Which is the nucleus of a helium atom. It also exists among electromagnetic rays Types characterized by high energy, above several eV (such as X-rays and gamma rays). It causes ionization of the medium through which it passes, such as gases, liquids, solids, and the bodies of living organisms. Therefore, ionizing radiation is harmful to health if its quantity exceeds certain limits. This makes it necessary not to go overboard with X-ray medical examination.
