Tungsten in Medical

The tungsten element is more effective in shielding and is well processed, so it is widely used in medicine as a collimator. Compared to lead, tungsten is much more environmentally friendly and has a higher density, which means smaller parts for the same weight. In neutron, x-ray and gamma rays In ray optics, a collimator is a device that filters the flow of rays so that only those traveling parallel to a specific direction are allowed through. Due to the use of lenses, it is not yet possible to focus radiation of such short wavelengths into an image as is common for electromagnetic radiation at optical or near-optical wavelengths, however a tungsten collimator can be used in neutron, x-ray and gamma rays

Tungsten parts are made from powder using powder metallurgy. This allows each piece of tungsten to return to its original powder form. The cost of recycling is relatively low and the process is well known and available in every country. There is very little loss when processing tungsten.
