In-office bone densitometry
the way you want it.


When you need to track your patients' bone density, the pDEXA is the most convenient way to obtain accurate and timely information.

It is a dual energy x-ray bone densitometer that's small enough to fit on a desk.  Features include:  design simplicity, laptop & printer configurable, initial & follow up scans from the same region of interest, and portable.

pDEXA is easy to use with step-by-step instructions clearly presented on the computer screen.  Automated analysis results in full color printouts.

(Equipment shown here as new.  Actual photographs available upon request.)
