Mindways Software Creates Affordable DXA-equivalent Hip Bone Densitometry

July 18, 2007 – Mindways Software Inc. recently displayed its QTC Pro, a bone densitometer that reportedly gives DXA a run for its money, promising a low purchase price and no site, personnel or high reoccurring maintenance costs, at the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA), July 8-12 in Orlando, FL.
QCT is said to be the first system to exploit CT’s inherent advantage for true 3-dimensional densitometry with volumetric BMD of the spine and hip. The QCT Pro reportedly transforms a CT scanner into the best of both worlds: a QCT trabecular spine BMD for sensitive treatment monitoring and early detection of low bone mass, and DXA equivalent hip BMD for use in diagnosis of osteoporosis and low bone mass and fracture risk assessment.
