The role of the beam limiter

The beam limiter is an indispensable part in X-ray inspection. It is mainly used for positioning when setting up, simulating the radiation area of X-ray, thereby reducing the radiation dose to the patient and increasing the quality of the image. There are three types of beam limiters now. , Manual, automatic, and fully automatic three kinds, usually portable machine choose manual, gastrointestinal machine choose electric. The fully automatic beam limiter is now the most used, also called feedback electric beam limiter and dose beam limiter.

Beam limiters are used in various medical equipment to control the irradiation field of X-rays and the characteristics of controlling the amount of radiation. Beam limiters are also called beam filters and collimators. With the existence of the beam limiter, the efficiency in X-ray inspection is greatly improved.
