The Hologic Discovery A DXA Bone Densitometer ushers boldly the institute’s entry into the field of bone health assessment. This equipment is its manufacturer’s top model and the first in the country. It has a C-arm that can swing the source and detector laterally enabling both anteroposterior and lateral imaging of the spine with the patient in the supine position. This improves the precision of the study and ensures patient comfort. Not only can it measure Bone Mineral Density of adult and pediatric patients providing a gold standard for osteopenia or osteoporosis evaluation, it can also do Vertebral Fracture analysis at the same time. It can also be used for Body Composition Analysis to measure the patient’s whole body and regional fat mass and lean mass which is useful for assessment and follow-up of various conditions like obesity and sarcopenia and for fitness and exercise programs.
