Hologic Discovery Wi Bone Densitometers gives you the following benefits:


Speed and image quality
Discovery’s OnePass single sweep scanning captures the hip and spine with 10-second scanning time. No other system comes close to the combined speed and imaging resolution of Discovery, with better than 1.8 Lp/min.

Automatic hip positioning
Discovery’s AccuView finds the bone edge for perfect positioning and automatically centers the hip the same way on follow-up exams for improved precision. AccuView helps eliminate common positioning errors, saving time and eliminating unnecessary rescanning.

Superior visualization
Discovery’s imaging technology provides superb image quality by eliminating the beam overlap errors and image distortion found in rectilinear systems. Hologic also incorporates computer-aided fracture assessment, to quantify and display the degree of vertebral compression and help confirm the existence and severity of deformities.
