What is the primary function of an X-ray grid?

The primary function of an X-ray grid is to improve the quality of radiographic images by reducing scatter radiation that can degrade image contrast. When X-rays pass through the body, some photons scatter in various directions, leading to decreased image contrast and clarity. X-ray grids consist of thin, parallel lead strips interleaved with radiolucent material, usually aluminum or plastic. These strips are aligned to allow primary X-rays to pass through while absorbing scattered photons. By absorbing scatter radiation, X-ray grids enhance image contrast and sharpness, resulting in clearer diagnostic images. This improvement in image quality is particularly crucial in areas of the body with high tissue density or when using higher X-ray energies. Overall, X-ray grids play a vital role in producing high-quality radiographic images essential for accurate diagnosis in medical imaging. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
