This study is presented the effects of alpha deposition into the women blood samples, most of WBC, RBC and PLT counted by used automatic CBC machine before and after irradiation with radium source. The values showed statistical significance for WBC and PLT based on the mean of their differences before and after irradiation which decreased with increasing radiation. Significant differences were found in the platelet and WBC before and after treatment with radiation after 10 minutes of activities of 226Ra. Although, significant decrease in platelet and WBC was observed after 15 minutes of treatment with 226Ra. However, no significant (p > 0.05) change in red blood count RBC was found after 15 minutes irradiated by radium, therefore, WBC/PLT were high significant decrease (p = 0.001) after irradiation.
