The market for bone densitometry has retreated from its heyday of a few years back, but sales have been strong enough to propel GE Medical Systems’ Lunar to a new milestone. The company has shipped 1000 units of its bone densitometer, Prodigy. The product was introduced in late 1998. Primary customers have been radiologists, orthopedists, and endocrinologists, as well as primary-care physicians and ob/gyns. Most of those units were sold when Lunar operated as an independent, publicly traded company. Lunar was acquired by GE in late 2000.
