X-ray collimator on U-arm

The X-ray collimator on U-arm is an essential accessory. The role on the U-arm is to control the field of illumination of the X-ray tube output line, so as to minimize the projection range, avoid unnecessary doses, and absorb some scattered rays, while meeting X-ray imaging and diagnosis. Improve the impact of clarity.
