Ionizing radiation is a type of energy that can be used to kill cells or damage DNA. It is often used in cancer treatment because it can target cancerous cells and kill them without harming healthy cells. Ionizing radiation can also be used for imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans.
There are some risks associated with ionizing radiation, but these are typically outweighed by the benefits. For example, exposure to high doses of ionizing radiation can cause skin burns, hair loss, and nausea. However, the risk of developing cancer from exposure to ionizing radiation is relatively low.
Overall, ionizing radiation is a valuable tool that can be used for both diagnosis and treatment of disease. While there are some risks associated with its use, these are usually outweighed by the potential benefits.
