Overview

A compact unit that offers essential features

Space restrictions in hospitals or private offices exclude many physicians from performing central bone density measurements for accurate osteoporosis and fracture-risk assessment. The DPX* Bravo overcomes that obstacle by offering you proven dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) technology in a small, space-saving footprint. It also provides you with essential, bone densitometry applications, such as AP spine, dual femur and forearm. Furthermore, it features the WHO FRAX fracture-risk assessment tool, which allows you to accurately predict the 10-year probability of a patient suffering a major fracture.

Benefits

The DPX Bravo offers your practice the following benefits:

COMPACT

When you can’t afford to give up an exam room

A small footprint makes the DPX Bravo a good fit for space-restricted offices and hospital rooms. A swing arm allows easy access for your patients, and enables you to use the table for other exam purposes.

ESSENTIAL

Proven osteoporosis assessment

The DPX Bravo provides you with proven tools for basic bone health assessment. Independent studies1,2,3 show that the DPX Bravo densitometer produces results with little precision error—a key to quickly detecting small changes in bone. This helps you confidently and efficiently diagnose osteoporosis and assess fracture risk.
