Ionizing radiation is emitted from the result of radioactive materials. The scientific regular measure of dose was quantified according to the exposure of radiation to ward human being. The aim of the study was assessing the amount of dose level and its consequence that effect toward human being. The importance of this work was judged based on how much was questioned and the path ahead for people to defend themselves from radiation exposure. The present work was conducted by using gamma spectroscopy to determine the radiation dose level of ionizing radiation. It was checked of quantification dose which incorporates the total amount of ionizing radiation that is associated with damage the tissue. It was determined that absorbed and Annual equivalent dose of natural occurrence of radioactive material. All human being are exposed to ionizing radiation with natural cosmic rays coming from outer space and image therapy within in hospital. When it seen that the exposures were varied as of people immunity. The sources of radiation exposures to the human were estimated based on the dose which affects the organ. Radiation exposed was leads serious gene and cancer disease. Generally, in this survey we assessed that particularly ionizing radiation caused damaged short and long term effect.
