The role of x ray collimator

As an important part of X-ray machine, the x ray collimator subsystem is mainly used to limit the radiation range of the X-ray beam, so as to reduce the radiation to patients, and the matching point system can realize the multi-slice function of X-ray film.

The x ray collimator is an essential component of medical X-ray diagnostic equipment. X-ray collimator is installed under the X-ray emission window of X-ray tube ball. According to the diagnostic needs, it can limit the radiation range of X-ray to a certain extent and reduce the radiation to human body as much as possible.

To achieve this function, x ray collimator with a certain thickness of lead plate made of lead shielding X-ray, lead in the X direction and Y direction with a pair of each lobe group, X ray radiation scope for rectangular, lead leaf is installed inside the x ray collimator mechanical structure, x ray collimator by manual or motor drive the X direction and Y direction lead leaf groups respectively move, change range of X-ray radiation.

In order to enable operators of X-ray diagnostic equipment to visually observe the set X-ray radiation range, an optical system composed of visible light source and reflection lens is adopted inside the x ray collimator, which will be consistent with the X-ray radiation range and visible light will be cast on the human body to simulate the radiation range.

The Newheek x ray collimator is divided into manual, electric and automatic, which can meet your multiple choice needs.If you are interested in this type of X-ray collimator, please contact us by email.
