English translation:Collimation near the film plane and near the focal spot
Explanation:
"Collimation near the film plane does not reduce the [patient] dose.---[Field size] collimation near the focal spot does reduce the [patient] dose." ---- _Patient dose_ is colloquial. _Volume dose_ to (or rceived by) the patient is the accurate term. --- _Beam restriction_ or _field size limitation_ are generic terms for all beam restriction methods. Collimation tends to connote adjustable (electro-)mechanical beam limitation devices or systems. (Main source: Extensive hands-on.)
