In this study it is aimed to design and develop an instrumental device which is capable of measuring some key parameters of X-ray tubes employed in many medical imaging devices including conventional X-ray imaging, fluoroscopy, mammography and dental X-ray imaging and those measured parameters which is critical for both imaging quality and Patient safety aspects are acquired and evaluated extremely precise and very reliable with the help of latest technological advancements. Furthermore the designed instrumental device is supplemented with a Bluetooth connection capability which allows both remote controlling of the device and data transmission between the device and PC Also a graphical user interface which is capable of recording multiple exposure data acquired via Bluetooth module and plotting comparison graphs in demand of user is also programmed in NET environment. Remote controlling of the device and data transmission via Bluetooth avoided possible risks of working close to high voltage transformer of X-ray tube, hence gives an extra protection to medical device technicians. Taken measurements can be used to make periodic calibrations of medical imaging devices and this also helps reducing possible risks may be caused by overdosing during imaging.
