How different alpha and beta radiation from gamma rays?

I'm not sure there are quantifiers for "difference", but "completely" comes close. Alpha and beta radiation is (massive) particle based, gamma rays are electromagnetic radiation ... technically this is a particle (photons), but photons have zero invariant mass. Alpha radiation is a helium nucleus on the run. Beta radiation is an electron on the run. Gamma radiation is a very high energy "light" ray (electromagnetic radiation).
