Bone Densitometer, Ultrasound Description:

In the MedWOW’s catalog, Bone Densitometer, Ultrasound is described as follows:
Bone densitometers using ultrasonic measurements to assess bone density, usually at the calcaneus or patella. Patients are not exposed to radioactive X-rays.

Tips for buying Bone Densitometer, Ultrasound

  • Some suppliers offer financing arrangements under a fee-sharing program to qualifying facilities to assist with the purchase of a DXA 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 do not use ionizing radiation or need special facilities, certification, or operation by registered technicians. Therefore, they are ideal for physician offices, mobile clinics, and other sites.
  • There are some alternatives to whole-body ultrasound bone densitometers, including peripheral DXA 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 DXA systems.
  • DXA ultrasound bone densitometer systems may require certified technicians for proper operation since they use radiation.
  • Facilities considering whole-body DXA ultrasound bone densitometers 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.
  • Shorter scan times and higher patient throughput as a result are achieved with s ultrasound bone densitometer systems using fan-beam technology, which performs a single sweep across the patient. However, pencil-beam ultrasound bone densitometers offer lower exposure to radiation and usually cost less than fan-beam systems.
  • Beam shape should be considered when choosing among DXA ultrasound bone densitometer systems.
  • There is a broad range of ultrasound bone densitometer models designed for specific clinical applications, such as Ultrasonometers and Absorptiometers. 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 DXA is used for long-term monitoring and creating reference databases.
  • Ultrasound Bone Densitometer systems should perform scans in less than one minute and perform automatic data analysis and corrections.
  • When selecting an ultrasound bone densitometer, speed should be the main factor.
