A customer consulted about the repair and replacement of the X-ray collimator

Recently, a customer asked about an X-ray collimator that he wanted to replace the equipment on a portable veterinary machine. According to the customer, it is used on a portable veterinary machine. If it is an X-ray collimator used on a portable X-ray machine, we recommend choosing our NK103 X-ray collimator, which is portable , Light weight and small size, very suitable for use on portable X-ray machines.
Let me briefly introduce the principle of this X-ray collimator!
The X-ray collimator is an accessory part of the X-ray inspection equipment. The main purpose is to position it when it is set up to simulate the X-ray radiation area, which can reduce the patient’s radiation dose and enhance the image quality.
The X-ray collimator is an electromechanical optical device installed in front of the output window of the X-ray tube assembly sleeve. Its main function is to control the irradiation field of the X-ray tube output line so that it can meet the requirements of X-ray imaging and diagnosis. Under the premise, try to reduce the projection range to avoid unnecessary doses; and can absorb some scattered rays to improve the impact of clarity. In addition, it can also indicate the size of the projection center and the projection field of view. Therefore, the beam limiter is an indispensable auxiliary equipment for X-ray projection and protection.
And there are many types of X-ray collimators, such as simple X-ray collimators, there are two kinds of shielding plate type and shielding barrel type. The shielding plate type is to install a square or a certain size in the x-tube window. A lead plate with a circular hole. The opening of the lead plate takes the center of the x-ray as the symmetric center. When projecting, you can get an irradiation field suitable for the size of the hole at a certain distance. Generally, an x-ray machine is equipped with multiple shields with different apertures, and the size of the irradiation field of the corresponding distance is indicated on the top.
