Sectra OneScreen is a simple first step to identify patients in the risk group for osteoporosis, who need further investigation and potential treatment. With a single, standard X-ray image of the hand it is possible to measure women’s bone health (Bone Mineral Density, BMD). The image is sent to our online service Sectra OneScreen. With the result and other known risk factors, you can easily identify individuals with increased risk of future fractures. The service is proven to be effective in monitoring the progress of osteoporosis.
The service is especially convenient in the context of mammography examinations and in the workflow at distal radius fractures.
Using Sectra online service is very simple. Sectra OneScreen does all the work, all you need to do is to refer the patient to a hand X-ray. Sectra will assist with any set-up needed to send images via the Internet to our service (this is a one time set-up). The analysis is automated and quality reviewed by a certified operator before the result is sent electronically to the physician.
With Sectra OneScreen you can easily conduct osteoporosis screening at the same time as the mammography examination - without disturbing the regular workflow. The hand x-ray is taken at the same time as the breast images, using the same radiology equipment - adding about 30 seconds to the overall examination time.
Sectra OneScreen uses the patented DXR-technology. It calculates bone mineral density (BMD) based on a single radiology image and is highly correlated to other methods of measure. Based on the World Health Organization standards, the BMD value is evaluated in relation to a reference group to diagnose osteoporosis.
