In our center we have a brand new DEXA SCAN DMS STRATOS COMPACT machine (2020 model).

Osteopenia is the initial stage before osteoporosis where it is a bone disease that occurs when there is a loss of calcium, resulting in the bones being thinner and more fragile. In addition to measuring bone density, the STRATOS is a flexible device with a wide range of applications such as fracture risk assessment, prosthesis monitoring and weight management.

The examination is performed in a minimum time where the patient lies on the examination bed. It is a reliable method and low radiation. The measurement is made in the lumbar spine but also in the neck of the femurs.

If the patient has a vertebral ligament or orthopedic material in the femur, the correct measurement of the bone can not be done. In such a case the measurement is made where there is no metal.
