- Radiation-emitting product : An electronic device or physical product that emits defined types of ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum, or sound energy, and makes claims to have medical benefits
- Radiation : Transmission of energy through space.
- Radiological weapon : A weapon that uses explosives or other mechanical means to disperse radioactive substances that present a hazard of producing acute radiation syndrome or other harmful effects, such as contaminating an area and making it unusable
- Radiotherapy : The use of ionizing radiation to treat malignant neoplasms and some benign conditions.
- U.S. Department of Energy : The department responsible for advancing the national, economic, and energy security of the United States.
- Weapons of mass destruction : Weapons that cause death or injury not primarily through kinetic energy of projectiles or the detonation of conventional explosives, but rather produce large-scale effects greater than possible with the same weight of explosives weapons; by means heat, blast and radiation from nuclear weapon; poisoning by chemical weapon; infectious disease by biological weapons; or acute or chronic radiation syndromes from radiological weapons.
- X-ray computed tomography : Three-dimensional medical imaging method, employing tomography created by computer processing.
- X-ray : An ionizing type of electromagnetic radiation whose absorption or diffraction often used for structural investigations of matter.
