The collimator is an electromechanical optical device installed in the output window of the tube sleeve of the x-ray tube assembly.
Its main function is to control the radiation field of the output line of the X-ray bulb tube under the premise of satisfying the X-ray imaging diagnosis, so that the projection range Minimize, avoid unnecessary doses, and absorb some scattered light to improve image clarity.
In addition, it can also indicate the size of the projection center and projection field of view.
Therefore, the collimator is an indispensable auxiliary device for x-ray irradiation and protection.
