The principle and use method of collimator

The collimator, as the name suggests, is to shrink the light beam. The collimator is an accessory part of the X-ray inspection equipment. The main purpose is to position and use when setting up to simulate the X-ray radiation area, which can reduce the patient’s radiation dose and enhance the image quality. The actual function is to first turn on the light on the collimator, and adjust the knobs in the X and Y directions of the collimator to make the light of the collimator shine on the film box of your machine, so that the size of the light field is exactly the size of the film Consistent, and then you can film. Because the machine must adjust the X-ray field and the light field to a minimum deviation before leaving the factory, this light field can simulate the invisible X-ray field.
