Working principle of collimate

Collimate is an essential part of the X-ray diagnostic machine. X-ray collimator medical X-ray machine installed in the ball tube X-ray output port, used to block X-ray scattering lines, reduce X-ray injury to patients, improve imaging quality, X-ray exposure to the range of devices needed.
Collimate protects non-checked areas during fluoroscopy and photographic examination. In both cases, the size, shape, and mass of the X-ray exposure field is regulated by collimate control.
Collimate works because x-rays are not visible light and cannot be used to visually determine where a patient is exposed. So use visible light instead of x-rays to determine the radiation field. According to the principle of mirror reflection, the mirror is placed on the Angle bisection of the simulated light source and focus.In this way, the visible light emitted by the light source is simulated and reflected by the mirror.
Newheek collimate is available in different types of X-ray machines.
