Introduction to X ray collimator

The X ray collimator is an important part of the x-ray machine. It is mainly used to limit the radiation range of the X-ray beam, reduce the radiation to the patient, and realize the multi-slice function of the X. Film is produced using a matched dot film system.
Collimation in radiology is an electromechanical optical device installed in front of the output window of the X ray tube. Its main function is to control the illumination field of the X-ray tube output line, so as to meet the requirements of X-ray imaging and diagnosis. Reduce the projection range, avoid unnecessary doses; and absorb some scattered rays to improve the clarity of the effect.
Collimated beam application
In addition, the collimation in radiology can also indicate the size of the projection center and the projected field of view. Therefore, collimation in radiology is an indispensable auxiliary device for X shooting and protection.
Newheek’s X-ray machine collimation in radiology is divided into manual, electric and automatic. Customers can choose according to their needs.
