Osteoporosis screening using the most advanced peripheral bone measurement density equipment. This compact, easily transportable unit provides quick, easy assessment of bone density at the heel in just a few seconds.
A safe, radiation-free modality that provides precise quantitative assessment of skeletal status, useful in identifying patients at risk of developing osteoporosis and for assessing their risk of future fracture.
A useful tool for developing a care plan for new admits as the results may predict a resident’s propensity for falls inside the facility.
Bone density results are calculated automatically and instantly printed in a comprehensive report with precise bone density measurement in grams per square centimeter. A graph is produced which compares the patient's bone density against a reference population.
Reimbursed by Medicare under CPT Code 76977 (ultrasound bone density measurement).
Test must be ordered by qualified personnel or physician. Standing order upon admissions and qualifying criteria is acceptable.
