Abstract

The authors describe a collimator for use in diagnostic radiology. Clinical radiographs show enhanced soft tissue detail through the use of interchangeable straight and curved wedge filters, and in situ dosimetry using a head phantom shows that the provision for asymmetric beam limitation results in reduction of absorbed dose.
