DEXA Bone mineral densitometry

DEXA Bone mineral densitometry:

Osteoporosis, the commonest metabolic bone disease in clinical practice, is a major public health problem worldwide. Its prevalence in our country is increasing due to ageing population. It is mandatory to diagnose and treat osteoporosis, much before the occurrence of fracture.

DEXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) technology combined with innovative software and hardware engineering make DPX-Pro Bone densitometer a versatile tool in diagnosing Osteoporosis, assessing fracture risk and monitoring response to therapy. The femur is the critical fracture site, and DPX’s unique dual femur feature automatically assesses the density of both femurs in one acquisition. enCORE software, the latest advancement in clinical DEXA, is the foundation for the superior performance of DPX-Pro. Patient scanning is quick and automated with this software, allowing consistency in results..
