DEXA scan has long been recognized as the “golden standard” for Bone Mineral Density (BMD) assessments. ECHOS – the breakthrough ultrasound device brings about the first non-invasive and non-radioactive solution for bone characterization and micro-architecture assessment at axial sites.

 

This seminar will highlight the technology as well as the benefits of ECHOS with practical session. The speakers will also discuss the future worldwide standardization of intervention thresholds and clinical validations.

 

With ECHOS, we define new standards to the Osteoporosis Diagnosis and Prognosis:

 

  • Diagnosis at any Point of Care
  • Zero radiation and ultra-low maintenance costs
  • Axial sites (Lumbar spine & Proximal Femur) scanning
  • Automatic image optimization and data analysis
  • 93% diagnostic agreement with conventional DEXA scan
