In this work, measurements of indoor radon concentrations were completed for selecteddwellings in Baghdad governorate using DURRIDGE RAD7 detector. The spectra measuredby this detector demonstrated that, the radon concentrations were changed from 89 Bq/m 3(Hay Ur district) to 191 Bq/m 3 (Al-Mansour district) with an average value of 123.3±24.3Bq/m 3 which is below the recommended range (200-300 Bq/m 3 ) given by (ICRP, 2009). Allother studied parameters such as EP, PAEC, AED and CPPP their
