In health care industry, densitometry is used to determine bone density, reveal fractures, and study bone damage complexity.
The device measures bone minerals content and thus allows conclusions about osteopenia and osteoporosis in patients being examined. Non-invasive diagnostics, using a densitometer, is prescribed for patients suffering from:
The results of this painless examination are used to determine the exact diagnosis, to appoint preventive measures and effective treatment. To conduct the test, ultrasound and X-ray densitometers are utilized.
Ultrasound densitometers use directed ultrasound waves to determine bone density. During an ultrasound scan, the rate of ultrasound signal transmission through the bone tissue is recorded. This technique allows determining bone density, and based on this data, conclusions about bones strength is made. Modern ultrasonic densitometers also facilitate microdamage detection and allow determining spatial orientation and trabeculae number. Then it is possible to calculate the examined bone stiffness index.
X-rays densitometers provide images which are built taking into account healthy and damaged bone tissue physical properties to absorb different radiation amounts. This method provides higher diagnostic accuracy compared to ultrasound devices. Depending on the examination needs, compact and stationary densitometers are used. A compact scanner is primarily used to scan the forearm and heel bone. A stationary system is designed to examine the spine, pelvis, and hips.
The most important technical characteristics of such devices are:
The prices of some systems can be as low as 6.000 USD or less, while the newest, high-tier systems may cost as much as 30.000 USD. The manufacturer plays a crucial role in making up the bone densitometer price. The more famous the brand the more expensive the machine, as the brand name itself says a lot about the quality and longevity.HOLOGIC,OSTEOMETER,BAIR HUGGER,GE,ALOKA,X-RITE are considered to be the most well-known. Besides, one should understand that new and demo machines will cost more than refurbished or used densitometer. What is the difference? New machines have never been used. They have the manufacturer’s warranty. Demo machines are, as a rule, exhibition models. They have not been used in clinical practice but they have been often presented at exhibitions. As a result, the price is lower. Refurbished machines are used machines that have undergone improvements (refurbishment can be done at the manufacturer’s facilities or in private repair
Be sure to pay attention to the device operational speed. Modern equipment makes scans for 1.5 to 5 seconds. It will take up to 65 seconds of computer time to scan the peripheral and axial skeleton. Patient capacity is an important parameter for the system. Any medical institution will gain when the equipment is capable of serving more patients per time unit. The device price is determined by the examination area. Light portable devices for local examinations are cheaper, bulky stationary systems, used for a wide range of examinations, are significantly more expensive.
