Bone densitometer doubles as office exam table

Article

GE Medical Systems has introduced an x-ray bone densitometer that optimizes office space by doubling as a patient examination table. The system is built around the Lunar DPX Duo, a fully functional bone densitometer equipped with a swing arm.

GE Medical Systems has introduced an x-ray bone densitometer that optimizes office space by doubling as a patient examination table. The system is built around the Lunar DPX Duo, a fully functional bone densitometer equipped with a swing arm.

The arm, which is positioned over the patient while conducting bone density measurements, can be moved out of the way when providing routine gynecologic or other examinations.

The Lunar DPX Duo provides bone density measurements of the hip and spine and a fracture risk assessment in one consolidated report. An optional DualFemur feature assesses both femurs and identifies the one with lower bone density. By combining the assessment of both femurs, thereby increasing the precision with which bone mineral density is determined, DualFemur allows monitoring of treatment response at the femur fracture site.

The system also includes SmartScan, a measurement technique that automatically adjusts the passage of bone scanning during the course of examination in real-time.
