Why is the Hologic Discovery the gold standard for testing for bone density?

Exceptional precision and accuracy High-definition digital DEXA detectors improve fracture detection and help visualize abdominal aortic calcifications Speed and image quality: this imaging technology captures the hip and spine with as fast as 10-second regional scanning time Superb visualization: this exclusive design uses a high-resolution detector array paired with true fan-beam linear acquisition geometry Consistency [...]

What are the benefits of bone density testing?

Early detection of bone loss and monitoring of therapeutic effectiveness Measurement of axial skeletal sites where potential early bone loss may occur, hence improving the early detection rates Highest precision of less than 1% Low radiation dose for patient imaging, yet the imaging has a high resolution

What is Osteoporosis and Low Bone Density?

Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become fragile and brittle from reduction of the mineralised material in the bone. It causes an overall weakening of the affected bones and increased risk of fracture. It is a silent progressive disease causing low bone density which leads to enhanced bone fragility. Osteoporosis also leads to [...]

Who interprets the Bone Mineral Densitometry results?

The person who views and interprets the Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) images is a Doctor specialising in Radiology. The Radiologist will prepare a report for your Health Care Professional. Other physicians such as rheumatologists and endocrinologists can also interpret the BMDs.
