Leha'ir

Leha'ir

Obtaining a usable x-ray image means that the technician must align the x-ray beam, collimator, and target properly, which often means taking several test radiographs, resulting in lost time and a waste of materials. The Leha'ir system uses a focused, visible light to indicate the spread of an x-ray beam. The light assists in aligning the x-ray generator with the target to achieve the required radiographic coverage. An indication system and electrical lockout are used on the x-ray generator to protect the light from the harmful x-rays and ensure that the light beam is retracted prior to exposing the film.
Abstract: 
The system allows for a simple and safe visual alignment method. The frame is hinged/sliding and mounted to the face of the x-ray generator. The light is high-intensity LED light, which illuminates the area of the projected radiation beam. The interlock switch prevents the x-ray generator from operating while the operator is aligning.
Benefits: 
Aids technician in radiographic setup to ensure coverage with significantly reduced rework -Reduces technician time -Reduces film and chemical usage for film radiography -Reduces unnecessary exposure to digital panels for digital radiography
