Aspen Healthcare , which owns and operates three private acute care hospitals and one outpatient oncology clinic in the U.K., plans to use Sectra’s technology for mammography and osteoporosis screening at its Holly House Hospital in Essex, England.

Based on a single radiology image of the hand, taken in connection with the mammography exam and using the same equipment, the Sectra dxr-online service calculates bone mineral density. To perform the combined exam, Holly House has invested in Sectra MicroDose Mammography. The technology allows providers to offer osteoporosis detection and mammography in a single exam, according to the Linköping, Sweden-based company.
