Tips for buying Bone Densitometer, Dual Energy


  • Some suppliers offer financing arrangements under a fee-sharing program to qualifying facilities to assist with the purchase of a X-ray Densitometer system. This program requires the payment of a specific fee per tested patient, and allows the facility to back down from the program at any time and return the equipment without penalty.
  • DXA is limited to hospital-based osteoporosis clinics.
  • Ultrasonic bone densitometers or Absorptiometers do not use ionizing radiation or need special facilities, certification, or operation by registered technicians. Therefore, it is ideal for physician offices, mobile clinics, and other sites.
  • There are some alternatives to whole-body DXA systems, including peripheral x-ray densitometer and ultrasound systems. These are smaller and cheaper, and they typically assess the peripheral rather than the axial skeleton. The radiation exposure is lower than typical bone densitometers.
  • Bone densitometers may require certified technicians for proper operation since they use radiation.
  • Facilities considering whole-body bone densitometer DXA systems should keep in mind that the installation of such a system usually requires an examination room that can accommodate the scanner table and the operator console. A room measuring at least 244 × 244 cm may be necessary, depending on the size of the table and operator console; small tables are becoming more available.
  • As a result, shorter scan times and higher patient throughput are achieved with X-ray Densitometer systems using fan-beam technology, which performs a single sweep across the patient. However, pencil-beam systems offer lower exposure to radiation and usually cost less than fan-beam systems.
  • Beam shape should be considered when choosing among bone densitometers.
  • There is a broad range of bone densitometer models designed for specific clinical applications. Buyers should consider the following features: data mining, analysis options, and the ability to share old data with a new system.
  • Report management is an important issue since X-ray Densitometry (DXA) is used for long-term monitoring and creating reference databases.
  • X-ray Densitometer Systems should perform scans in less than one minute and perform automatic data analysis and corrections.
  • When selecting Bone Densitometers (Absorptiometer) units, speed should be the main factor.
