Varian Medical Systems announced that its Claymount Optica 20 and Optica 40 collimeters have received FDA registration. Used to narrow the focus of x-ray beams in film-based and digital radiography systems, the company’s collimators can improve image quality and minimize dose to patients.

A manually operated product, the Optica 20 collimator is designed with the needs of human and veterinary radiography systems. Further, the Optica 40 is a motorized system that’s intended for integration into human radiography and fluoroscopy imaging systems.

“The launch of the Claymount Optica collimators is part of Varian’s commitment to offer our customers one-stop shopping with a complete portfolio of x-ray components,” says Carl LaCasce, vice president of sales and marketing for Varian’s Imaging Components.
