Less than two years after unveiling its Delphi series x-ray bone densitometer, Hologic has surpassed 500 shipments of the product. The high-performance system features the company’s proprietary Instant Vertebral Assessment (IVA) technology, which assesses the two risk factors for osteoporotic fracture: low bone mineral density and the presence of a vertebral fracture. IVA allows clinicians to perform a rapid, low-dose evaluation of the spine in a single office visit during a routine bone densitometry exam. The high-resolution, single-energy images obtained with IVA visually reveal spinal fractures, which substantially increase the risk of future fracture, and thereby affect a clinician’s therapeutic decisions, according to the company. In addition to the 500 Delphi systems now installed, 150 densitometry systems previously installed by Hologic have been upgraded to Delphi capabilities.
