Bone Sonometers provide a non-invasive, accurate, and safe method for detecting osteoporosis. Bone Sonometers use ultrasound to detect bone density levels in patients of all ages. Studies show that approximately one in two women, and up to one in four men, aged 50 and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Detecting osteoporosis early is key to developing a treatment plan to prevent further bone loss.
Unlike older methods, such as x-ray testing, Bone Sonometers are radiation-free. This allows more frequent testing, which can be vital in creating a treatment plan for osteoporosis patients. With an ultrasound Bone Sonometer, patients can be tested every six months or less to monitor progress.
Bone Sonometers use targeted measurements of the arm, leg, foot, or finger to assess bone density. The ability to choose test sites makes these systems ideal for patients with limited mobility and flexibility, who may not be able to be tested from certain sites. Testing of the arm or foot is also quicker and more comfortable than traditional full body scans. Bone Sonometers can achieve accurate results in as little as ninety seconds.
Many units are portable, and can be carried from one exam room to the next. With long battery life and customizable reports, these Bone Sonometers are an incredibly user-friendly solution to bone density testing.
