Prodigy’s benefits are backed by a range of features:
Advanced technology to help strengthen clinical confidence
- Published in hundreds of peer-reviewed journal articles
- Installed base of nearly 11,000 units in 93 countries
- Third generation DXA technology—with over 30 years of innovations since the first bone densitometry FDA clearance in 1980, including:
- Narrow-angle fan-beam with MVIR—that eliminates magnification error1
- Direct-to-digital detector—that improves image quality and lowers dose compared to competitive systems2,3
- Exceptional precision
Streamlined DXA workflow with a full suite of automated tools and connectivity options
- Automated scan and analysis features, including:
- Supine Forearm: Performs supine-forearm scans without patient repositioning
- OneScan: Performs AP Spine and DualFemur exams without requiring patient repositioning between scans
- Previous Scan Image: Displays the image from an earlier assessment as the new image is acquired
- Full suite of efficient data-management tools, including:
- Composer: Customizable, automated reporting to help manage patient care
- Multi-User Database: Allows multiple workstations to access DXA scan files simultaneously; allows multiple
GE bone densitometers to acquire and save scan files to a common database; and allows remote analysis
and reporting via network.
- Batch Output: Expands reporting capability by outputting multiple exams, whether printed or sent to DICOM
- Database Export: Expands data exporting options to include tab-delimited files (i.e. Excel)
- Business tools to manage your DXA offering, including:
- Connectivity tools: Transmit data where you need it with DICOM (IHE compliant), HL7, SQL Server and TeleDensitometry
- Practice management tools: Help increase patient awareness and drive physician referrals
- Remote service support
