    Title: Ionizing Radiation
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • Any electromagnetic or particulate radiation capable of producing ion pairs by interaction with matter.
    • Scope limited to X and gamma rays, alpha particles, beta particles (electrons), neutrons, and charged nuclei.
    • Important biologically since media can be altered (e.g., ionized atom in DNA molecule may be altered, thereby causing cell death, or mutation).
