What is ionizing radiation?

Radiation with sufficient energy to strip electrons from or “ionize” atoms when interacting with matter, including human tissue is called “ionizing radiation.” It may be either in the form of waves, such as gamma or x-rays, or particles, such as alpha particles, beta particles and neutrons.
