Similar to non-ionizing radiation, ionizing radiation is energy in the form of particles or waves. However, ionizing radiation is so high in energy it can break chemical bonds -- meaning it can charge (or ionize) an atom that interacts with it. At a lower energy, it may strip off a couple of : Debra Ronca. All work with Ionising Radiation is carried out under the Ionising Radiations Regulations (IRR99). For ISIS this means that we apply the following control and measurement procedures to our work: 1. Local Rules 2. Personal Dosimetry 3. Systems of Work. Previous Next. Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine York: IPEM pp, ISBN: This book is the much awaited replacement for the old yellow `Guidance Notes' published in by the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB). Since then nearly all Regulations covering the use of ionising radiation have been updated. The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM. Ionizing radiation, flow of energy in the form of atomic and subatomic particles or electromagnetic waves that is capable of freeing electrons from an atom, causing the atom to become charged (or ionized).Ionizing radiation includes the more energetic end of the electromagnetic spectrum (X-rays and gamma rays) and subatomic particles, such as electrons, neutrons, and alpha particles (helium.
