LUNAR DPX Bone Densitometer The Tool for Diagnosing and Managing Low Bone Density
One in three Caucasian women over the age of 50 has osteoporosis. A 50-year-old woman has a 40 percent chance of suffering an osteoporotic fracture in her lifetime. Osteoporosis is a debilitating disease that affects millions of people every year. However, early detection of this disease can lead to effective treatment.
Our DPX bone densitometer measures changes in bone density precisely, providing invaluable information in the assessment of metabolic bone disease.
Examinations are comfortable, fast and safe. Patients typically spend only minutes reclining fully-clothed on the densitometer. Radiation exposure is very low (equivalent to 1/20th of the dosage received in a normal chest x-ray).
The operator is with the patient at all times, and results are available quickly.
Our DPX bone densitometer exam will be a valuable experience for both you and your patients. Our Densitometer Provides: Clinical Excellence
