The scattered doses received by the area surrounding the target that has been subjected to x-rays were investigated. Two experiments were carried out: 1-Al2O3: C was used as dosimeter and the luminescence counts was measured using both the RisO TL/OSL system and an ion chamber. 2- BeO aliquots were used and the counts were read using the IBEOX/OSL system. According to the results, the doses absorbed by the area surrounding the target are significantly amount.
