Bioglass is a material which can repair damaged living tissues and organs by interacting with biological systems. Bioglass were irradiated by different beam qualities (gamma and X-ray). The effectiveness of different doses and energies of gamma ray and X-ray were studied on bioglass as well as some dosimetric properties of bioglass were studied by applying the thermoluminescence technique and spectrometer technique. Results showed that the efficiency of electron and hole center generation depends on basic bioglass composition and also dependent on the type of ionizing radiation. The response of dose is not effective at working voltage 70 kV which means that the bioglass may be safe under this value of applied volt.
