The machine assesses the phalanx of the middle finger. This Bone Mineral Density (BMD) value is
a relative indicator of bone density elsewhere in the body. AccuDEXA's BMD estimates can also be used as an aid to the physician in determining fracture risk. Phalangeal density tests
have shown in studies with Radiographic Absorptiometry to be more predictive than both forearm and spine BMD tests in predicting vertebral deformity.
• Low radiation - Effective radiation to the patient is just 1/150,000th of a chest X-ray.
• High Precision - Patient precision error is less than 1%.
• Track bone changes in patients - Very precise, can detect small fluctuations in bone density.
• Highly correlated with other proven technologies - Bone mineral content, assessed by accuDEXA, correlated strongly with bone mineral content of the hand and forearm regions assessed by DXA, SXA, and RA.
accuDEXAUses the Best Technology
For BMD assessment, accuDEXA uses DEXA technology, the gold standard in bone densitometry.
