Bone densitometry vendors are developing new low-cost scanners targeted at physicians' offices, and Pixi is Lunar's (Hall A, #2112) entry into this promising niche. The scanner is based on DEXA technology and received 510(k) clearance this year, with the Madison, WI, company starting the first production shipments in September.

In MRI, Lunar will show a new version of the Artoscan niche MRI scanner it sells through an agreement with Esaote Biomedica of Italy. Artoscan M is a more compact offering that integrates the system's magnet, electronics, and operator console into a single package.
