Title
(EN) MULTILEAF COLLIMATOR WITH ALTERNATING TRAPEZOIDAL LEAF GEOMETRY DESIGN
(FR) COLLIMATEUR MULTILAME DE CONCEPTION GÉOMÉTRIQUE DE LAME ALTERNÉE TRAPÉZOÏDALE
Abstract
(EN)
A multileaf collimator includes a plurality of beam-blocking leaves of a first type and a plurality of beam-blocking leaves of a second type. The beam-blocking leaves of the first type are alternatingly arranged with the beam-blocking leaves of the second type side by side. Each of the beam-blocking leaves of the first type has a trapezoidal geometry viewed in the leaf longitudinal moving direction comprising a wider end and a narrower end with the wider end being proximal to a source. Each of the beam-blocking leaves of the second type has a trapezoidal geometry viewed in the leaf longitudinal moving direction comprising a wider end and a narrower end with the wider end being distal to the source.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un collimateur multilame comprenant une pluralité de lames de blocage de faisceau d'un premier type et une pluralité de lames de blocage de faisceau d'un second type. Les lames de blocage de faisceau du premier type sont disposées en alternance avec les lames de blocage de faisceau du second type côte à côte. Chacune des lames de blocage de faisceau du premier type est dotée d'une géométrie trapézoïdale vue dans la direction de déplacement longitudinal de lame comprenant une extrémité plus large et une extrémité plus étroite, l'extrémité plus large étant proximale à une source. Chacune des lames de blocage de faisceau du second type est dotée d'une géométrie trapézoïdale vue dans la direction de déplacement longitudinal de lame comprenant une extrémité plus large et une extrémité plus étroite avec l'extrémité plus large étant distale par rapport à la source.
