The GE Lunar Prodigy bone densitometer features direct-digital technology that eliminates the magnification effects of traditional wide-angle fan beam densitometers. With more than 6,000 systems installed worldwide, Prodigy is one of the most trusted fan beam densitometers available.
Effective use of serial DXA measurements for monitoring changes in BMD requires the minimization of precision error. The Lunar Prodigy Advance has been demonstrated to have a precision error that easily meets the ISCD standards for all regions.

|Fail to create a new report on Encore 2009.|
Hi friends, Does anyone know how to create a new report in the Encore 2009 software. I've tried to create one but does not work. If I simulate it works, when i open an existing exame and choose this new report the image does not appear in the box. The created file is emptyReply

I was just recently at a bone density seminar and the instructor felt that we should be doing the aluminum spine phantom weekly. I was not performing bone denisties when this unit was put in so I have now history knowledge and we currently only do the daily QC test with the black box. My question is should we really be doing this QC test weekly in the future?Reply
ScanCheck automatically identifies potential acquisition and analysis errors and provides multimedia help. It also alerts of incorrect positioning, unusual anatomy, high-density areas and artifacts, and makes recommendations for correction.
The DualFemur option automatically scans both femurs in one seamless acquisition without repositioning, and identifies the weakest side to enhance confidence in treatment decisions. The trending function enables seamless follow-up of changes.
PRODIGY: Total body/body composition
Body composition scans with DXA provide precise and accurate data on bone and tissue composition, including bone mineral density (BMD), lean and fat tissue mass, and %fat. They provide both total body data and regional results.
PRODIGY: Dual-energy Vertebral Assessment (DVA)
DVA aids in the identification and assessment of vertebral deformations. DVA provides rapid single- and dual-energy images of the AP and lateral spine, allowing clinicians to visually assess the presence of vertebral deformations.
Automated physician reporting comes complete with the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) treatment guidelines and World Health Organization (WHO) diagnostic criteria for a complete osteoporosis assessment. Composer™ is designed to follow diagnostic guidelines proposed by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry (ISCD), determining the lowest T-score based on defined regions. Recommendation text is inserted to aid productivity.
