Bone Densitometers – Compare which is best for your practice

There is no doubt that there is a big demand for bone densitometers in the market due to the daily increase of osteoporosis cases. If you are looking to buy this type of equipment for your facility, Medilab Global has Used Bone Density Machines For Sale. And if you´re looking to determine which is best for your practice, we can help with a clear comparison between the 3 types.

Pencil Beam DXA

This is the most common method used for bone densitometers. The image on this densitometer is generated by a single X-Ray beam. If your practice has regular to low traffic, this might be a good option for you, due to the time frame in which the scans are developed. In this case, you get clear results, yet the results might take longer. 

Fan Beam

If you are looking for a bone densitometer that can scan a higher number of patients daily, this might be the best option for you. Unlike the Pencil Beam, the Fan Beam uses multiple X-ray beams to scan the body, therefore offering faster results. You might sometimes come across a slight image distortion due to the tissue magnification, but you are able to increase the number of patients that you can treat.

Narrow Angle Fan Beam

This type of bone densitometer comes with a great feature. You can have multiple X-Ray beams scanning at a time while also capturing multiple images. This device provides the combination of the Pencil Beam and the Fan Beam, developing great image quality at great speed.
