  4. 4. Note slide
  5. 5. Note Slide <ul><li>ionizing radiation is radiation that produces immediate chemical effects on human tissue . X-rays, gamma rays, and particle bombardment (neutron beam, electron beam, protons, mesons, and others) give off ionizing radiation. This type of radiation can be used for medical testing and treatment, industrial and manufacturing purposes, weapons and weapons development, and more. </li></ul><ul><li>1 Gray = 100 Roentegen </li></ul>
