Radiation free bone densitometry
for the early diagnosis of Osteoporosis.
Breakthrough echographic approach for bone characterization and micro-architecture assessment enables the scanning of the axial reference sites:Lumbar Vertebrae and Proximal Femur.
The next generation device.
EchoStation is based on the proprietary method R.E.M.S. (Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry), an innovative approach for bone micro-architecture characterization through the exploitation of radiofrequency signals acquired during an echographic scan at lumbar vertebrae and femoral neck. A quick software assisted scan, which lasts 60″ for the spine and 40″ for the femur, provides simultaneous acquisition of images and corresponding Radiofrequency signals.The algorithm automatically identifies the volumes of the target bone and discards wrong acquisitions and artefacts, providing an instant medical report.
