Flatbed bone densitometers - multiple systems available
Norland Eclipse Systems
6' DXA Table Bone Densitometer
(Installation & training available in the USA!)
(Photos available on request)
6' DXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) table.
Central (proximal femur, lumbar spine,
and peripheral (forearm) scanning.
Proven, precise pencil-beam x-ray technology.
Exclusive 8-level Dynamic Filtration - which compensates for the widest range in patient thicknesses to ensure every data point receives proper exposure, thus eliminating photon saturation or starvation.
Exclusive calibration process allows scanning of the widest range of subjects without special calibration or correction of data.
Comprehensive, easy-to-use color reporting.
Presents standard BMD, BMC, Area, and sBMD scan results, using NHANES III data -- a new standard in the field of bone densitometry for total spine and total hip.
Spine = 2 minutes
Hip = 3 minutes
Forearm = 3 minutes
Spine = better than 1.0% CV
Hip = better than 1.2% CV
Accuracy: Better than 1%
Patient radiation: 2.0 mRems (hip or spine)
Calibration: Automatic -- uses 77-step basis to set transformation to cover minimum and maximum range of soft and hard tissues.
X-ray source: Stationary Anode, Constant Current
Scanning method: Rectilinear scan.
Detector: Count Mode, 2-Detector.
Position indicator: Class II Laser and Microprocessor Controlled Intelligent Scanning.
