Homemade X-Ray Machine William Osman
Engineer William Osman wasn’t happy that the hospital charged him $69,210.232 for a visit requiring x-rays, so he came up with the idea to build his very own x-ray machine. Fortunately, insurance covered most of those charges, but what about those who live uninsured? This x-ray machine may not have the bells and whistles of its hospital counterpart, though it only requires a few parts, like a high voltage DC power supply and DSLR, to build. Read more for the video and additional information.



In addition to the high-voltage DC power supply, there’s a second smaller one that the cathode uses to form an electron beam and a an r-ray vacuum tube salvaged from a dental x-ray head. He then applies the high voltage (30-150kv) as a tube voltage, thus accelerating the electrons into x-rays. Geiger counters and lead sheets were used to keep things somewhat safe, while a finger bone cast in ballistic shell was used to make the first x-ray with a long exposure on a DSLR.
