The led x ray collimator, also known as the “shield”, “dimmer” or “beam illuminator”, is mounted in the x-tube sleeve window to mask unwanted primary x-rays during X-ray inspection. It limits the x-ray field to the minimum required range, minimizing the amount of x-ray exposure the patient receives. The led x ray collimator the field of illumination so that the patient and operator receive as little radiation as possible. Reduce the area where secondary rays are generated, and improve the clarity of the perspective and the film. It is also possible to block leaking rays as much as possible.
The led x ray collimator is divided into manual and electric types, which plays an important role in the X-ray machine.
