Hologic Discovery SL Bone Density Machine

The Hologic Discovery SL bone density machine combines the proven clinical value of bone mineral density (BMD) measurement and vertebral assessment with Express BMD

Hologic Discovery SL Overview

The Hologic Discovery SL combines the proven clinical value of bone mineral density (BMD) measurement and vertebral assessment with Express BMD, the most rapid means of acquiring accurate BMD results. Express BMD and Instant Vertebral Assessment (IVA), both powered by our exclusive OnePass fan-beam technology, represent two of the many features that improve the accuracy, speed and convenience of assessing osteoporosis.
