May 9, 2007 - GE Healthcare is exhibiting the Lunar Prodigy Primo, a performance bone mineral density (BMD) system designed to help doctors detect and diagnose osteoporosis, at the 55th Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) May 7-9, in San Diego, CA.
The Primo system is built on the foundation of the Lunar Prodigy, reportedly proven to be the most precise method for bone density testing and represents the 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.
The Primo contains the enCORExpress, a six-click user-interface that is icon driven with limited choices, allowing for a more streamlined decision-making process. The OneScan is an operation technique created to help clinicians to perform a BMD exam in a few clicks, from measurement to final results.
