The work presents a logical picture of a biodynamics instrumentation requirement, a design to answer the requirement, testing of the prototype, evaluation of the quality of the prototype, and a discussion of the advantages and limitations of the design. The operational nature of a high-speed X-ray device with certain advantages for biodynamic research is discussed. The final nature of the device is found to have certain advantages over commercially available X-ray units for general medical research purposes as well as for general clinical radiology.
