Hologic gets FDA OK for hip structure analysis tool
Hologic announced that the FDA has cleared the incorporation of proprietary Hip Structure Analysis software for use in its dual-energy x-ray (DXA) bone densitometers. HSA uses specialized software to examine the structural geometry of two-dimensional DXA scan images. This technology is designed to assist physicians in determining if a patient’s bones have been weakened. This new feature is different than conventional bone density scanners, which only look at average density. More: http://www.hologic.com/wh/news-091206.htm
