The Hologic Horizon Wi bone density machine is the most rapid means of acquiring accurate BMD results
Hologic Horizon Wi Overview
The Horizon DXA System enables you to capture highly detailed images you can trust – even when imaging large, obese patients. With its low-noise detectors, you have the power to assess an expanded range of clinical conditions with speed and precision.
Hologic’s detector array also works in concert with a new high-capacity X-ray generator to increase heat-load capacity for longer life — with no cool-down time. Not only does this help increase patient throughput, it improves image quality.
Measurement of Visceral Adipose Tissue
InnerCore™ Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT) Assessment:
Deep visceral fat is metabolically active and is often associated with diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose tolerance and metabolic syndrome. With Hologic’s InnerCore™ Visceral Fat Assessment, you now have a convenient way to estimate a patient’s visceral fat in the abdominal region, allowing clinicians and researchers a unique understanding of these potential disease processes that may place certain patients within a higher risk category.
DXA accurately and precisely measures whole body, regional fat and lean tissue within the body. Producing consistent results with regard to clinical concerns relevant to obesity related diseases.
- Quantifies total body and regional fat mass with resulting indices.
- Visceral fat area results from DXA correlate with visceral fat area
