Some customers inquire about the X-ray collimator and ask us if we are the manufacturer of the X-ray collimator. The X-ray collimator is an electromechanical optical device installed in front of the output window of the X-ray tube assembly. Its main function is to control the irradiation field of the X-ray tube output line so that it can meet the requirements of X-ray imaging and diagnosis. Under the premise, try to reduce the projection range to avoid unnecessary doses; and can absorb some scattered rays to improve the impact of clarity. In addition, it can also indicate the size of the projection center and the projection field of view. Therefore, the X-ray collimator is an indispensable auxiliary equipment for X-ray projection and protection.
Our company is a manufacturer of X-ray collimators. The X-ray collimators produced by our company are divided into manual beams and electric beams.
The opening and closing movement of the wire-shielding lead leaf of the manual X-ray collimator is realized by manually adjusting the knob or pulling rod on the X-ray collimator. In addition to the above-mentioned internal structure, there is also an irradiation field indicator system. It uses an indicator bulb to simulate the focal point of the X-ray tube, and replaces the X-ray with visible light, which is reflected by a reflector and hits the bed surface.
The electric X-ray collimator uses a single layer of two sets of lead leaves and a special internal protective structure to shield X-rays. The beam limiter’s irradiation field is adjusted in an electric mode. The movement of the lead leaves is driven by a DC motor, and the irradiation field is continuously adjustable.
