Early prognosis for osteoporosis

With a single, standard X-ray image of the hand, acquired on your mammography modality, it is possible to measure women’s bone health (Bone Mineral Density, BMD). The test calculates the risk for future fractures with the highest precision in the market offering women the opportunity of a better quality of life. It takes about 30 seconds to perform and is fully integrated into the mammography workflow.

Sectra has packaged this bone health assessment into an efficient service, Sectra OneScreen, that you, in turn, can offer to the women visiting your clinic. For the private clinic, this is an easy to sell add-on service for your mammography customers, delivering a direct impact on your bottom line. For public care providers, this is the most effective bone health screening solution available. This online service is charged on a cost per examination basis.
