How does the X-ray collimator contribute to minimizing radiation dose to surrounding healthy tissues?

The X-ray collimator plays a crucial role in minimizing radiation dose to surrounding healthy tissues by limiting the X-ray beam to the specific area of interest, known as the irradiation field. Through precise collimation, the collimator shapes and restricts the X-ray beam to match the size and shape of the imaging receptor or the region of anatomy being examined. This focused beam reduces unnecessary radiation exposure to adjacent tissues and organs, mitigating the risk of radiation damage and scatter. By narrowing the beam, the collimator helps enhance image quality while minimizing the dose to surrounding structures, contributing to the principle of as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) radiation exposure in medical imaging. Regular calibration and maintenance of collimators ensure their accuracy in limiting radiation fields, further optimizing patient safety and image quality. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
