Vienna study shows excellent DXL Calscan results

Study results presented at the Austrian Society of Bone & Mineral Research on November 17th by Dr. Christian Muschitz showed that DXL Calscan identified more clinically osteoporotic patients with fragility fractures of the spine than scans of the hip & spine using the iDXA, an axial DXA device. The comparable scans were performed on the same fracture patients using DXL Calscan at the heel and the iDXA axial device at the femur neck, spine, total hip.

According to Dr. Muschitz conclusion, “BMD measurements of the calcaneus with DXL Calscan are comparable to BMD measurements at the spine and hip to identify patients at risk for osteoporotic fractures.”
