Hologic, the pioneer of X-ray-based bone densitometry, has taken advanced health assessment to the next level with the NEW Horizon family of DXA bone densitometry systems. These multi-faceted systems are designed to help you assess three major health concerns: osteoporosis, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
Horizon features the latest technological innovations, including:
- Single Energy [SE] Femur Exam – 10- to 15-second femur scan that allows clinicians to visualize potential atypical femur fractures that can occur as the result of long-term bisphosphonate use.
- A NEW High Resolution Ceramic Digital Detector Array - Ultrafast, high output, low noise ceramic detectors that provide better bone mapping and image.
- A NEW High Frequency Pulsing Power Supply – A smaller, lighter power supply, providing better access for patient positioning and development flexibility for future applications. Hologic’s full size X-ray tube maintains dependability.
- A Dynamic Calibration System - Delivering real time pixel-by-pixel calibration through bone and tissue equivalents for greater long-term measurement stability.
