Bone Mineral Density System Detects, Diagnoses Osteoporosis

GE Healthcare has introduced the Lunar Prodigy Primo, a new performance bone mineral density (BMD) system designed to help doctors detect and diagnose osteoporosis.
The Primo system is built on the foundation of the industry standard Lunar Prodigy, proven to be one of the most precise methods for bone density testing and represents the gold standard for detecting low bone mass and increased risk of fracture. The Primo offers the same Prodigy series breakthrough direct digital technology, precision and accuracy, but in a redesigned and streamlined package to meet the needs of the primary care and in-office physician.
