Ionizing radiation

ionizing radiation

ionizing radiation is radiation in which an individual particle (for example, a photon, electron, or helium nucleus) carries energy capable of displacing electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby producing ions. Alpha and beta particles, as well as gamma and x-rays, are all examples of ionizing radiation.

Re: Nucleoside analogs and ionizing radiation

My understanding of the way radiation therapy works is that they carefully target only the abnormal cells, delivering precise doses of radiation designed not just to disrupt cell division but to destroy the cells completely by trashing ...
