Collision is a general term whereas scattering refers to the deviation of radiation or stream of particles from there path by either irregularities in the medium or some scattering centres. In case of scattering centres it's the elastic or inelastic collision between the particles and scattering centres that defines elastic or inelastic scattering.
For example, a collision of a car and truck on road, and scattering of light by atmospheric particles which makes sky appear blue.
