GE Lunar Achilles Bone Densitometer


Osteoporotic fracture risk assessment as discriminating as DXA at the hip and spine

The osteoporotic fracture risk assessment provided by Achilles closely matches prevalence as defined by central DXA. Its high negative predictive value—97 percent for 50- to 59-year-old Caucasian women—makes Achilles especially useful for discriminating between those not at risk for fracture and those in need of further evaluation by central DXA.    

A quick and comfortable exam :
Bone assessments take just a few minutes. Your patients sit comfortably during the pain-free exam—no messy gels required. Moreover, the unit emits no ionizing radiation.

Efficient customizable workflow:
Achilles units are portable and affordable. When combined with the quick exam time, these features help enable you to reach more patients. Furthermore, the user-friendly Achilles requires no special room and no formal certification. Results are concise and easy for staff to interpret.
