What is the function of the C-arm collimator for orthopedic intervention

Some customers come to inquire about the role of the orthopedic intervention C-arm collimator,
The collimator, also known as the beam limiter, acts as the name implies to shrink the beam. The main function is to restrain the X-rays, adjust the X-ray irradiation range and area according to the requirements of the filming inspection, and prevent the patient from being exposed to unnecessary rays. The actual operation is to first turn on the light on the collimator, and adjust the knobs in the X and Y directions of the collimator, so that the light of the collimator shines on the film box of the machine, so that the size of the light field is exactly the same as the size of the film. , 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 plays a role in simulating the invisible X-ray field.
The collimator produced by our company has two types: manual and electric. The irradiation field can reach the range of 5*5cm–43*43cm, which can meet the use of most small and medium X-ray machines.
