Hologic offers an ultrasound modality for bone testing with the portable, easy-to-use Sahara clinical bone sonometer. In less than a minute, you can estimate a patient’s bone mineral density based on an ultrasound measurement of the heel, the preferred peripheral site proven in numerous studies to predict fracture risk. This fast, radiation-free bone screening tool is just one of many state-of-the-art detection tools available from Hologic.
The Sahara bone sonometer, which provides radiation-free ultrasound technology for safe bone assessment, is a simple, convenient and practical system for the office-based physician. Ultrasound bone sonometry provides precise quantitative assessment of skeletal status, which is useful in identifying patients at risk of developing osteoporosis and in assessing their risk of future fracture.
