In the collimation process of X-ray collimator, what is the significance of aligning the light field and radiation field?

Aligning the light field and radiation field in the collimation process of an X-ray collimator is crucial for accurate and safe medical imaging. The light field is the visible area projected onto the patient, indicating the X-ray field’s boundaries. When properly aligned with the radiation field, which represents the actual X-ray beam, it ensures that the X-rays are targeted precisely at the area of interest.

This alignment is essential for several reasons. First, it enhances the accuracy of the radiographic image, as the X-rays are directed precisely to the intended anatomical region. Second, it helps minimize unnecessary radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissues, promoting dose optimization and patient safety. Proper alignment ensures that the captured image corresponds accurately to the clinical information required, contributing to effective diagnosis while minimizing radiation risks for the patient and healthcare professionals. If you are interested in our X-ray collimators, please feel free to contact us. Whatsapp:+86 18953613955.
