Recently, the improvement of radiology systems along with the developing technologies has provided an important contribution in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous medical cases. In this study, we propose a new radiation dose measurement approach for patients and radiation workers on X-ray units. The approach is extremely important to correct the shortcomings in this area as well as to provide a "gold standard" for radiation quality control measurement of X-ray units. The implementation of the approach will allow to the elimination of concerns of patients and radiation workers about radiation. Also it will present the opportunity to work in a safe environment for radiologists and radiation workers.
