Calibration and testing of medical devices are one of the most important and critical issue in metrology field. Although metrological links has been well established for measurements in technical and military field, metrology link is not powerful enough for measurements in medical field. For the medical device industry and applications in health sector, nothing counts more than the safety of a patient. Therefore all hospitals & medical equipment manufacturers have to perform periodic testing and calibration of equipments, as a quality control regimen that guarantees the reliability of medical devices. Test, measurement and calibration of bio-medical equipments is becoming increasingly significant, when accuracy in diagnosis and effectiveness in treatment is required. A feasibility study has been carried out and a report was published last year at TÜBİTAK UME (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, National Metrology Institute) in order to outline the current situation in the country. A five year roadmap and a a plan were programmed for providing of reliability and metrological traceability in medical measurements. Medical metrology research laboratory has been established and a number of medical device design projects were initiated.
