Verification of the proper alignment of the collimator light field with the x-ray field is essential in radiographic quality control. This test tool readily indicates a 1% or 2% misalignment at a 40" focal-film distance (FFD), but it may be used at any FFD. It consists of a flat 8" x 10" plate with a 14 cm x 18 cm pattern etched on its surface. It can also be used to check fluoroscopy alignment and collimation.
