The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), in Laurel, Md., has signed an agreement with Hologic Inc., granting them exclusive, worldwide rights to the Lab’s bone health analysis technology. The Hip Structure Analysis (HSA) technology was developed in the mid 1990s to address challenges associated with manned space exploration. It is now the leading hip structure analysis method for DXA scans in research and pharmaceutical studies, according to Hologic, which plans to take the tool through the Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory approval processes and offer it to bone densitometer customers.
