Bone Mineral Densitometry

CZT is revolutionising bone mineral densitometry

Transforming bone mineral densitometry

Kromek Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (BMD, DEXA)

X-ray bone densitometers are used to determine a patient’s bone quality, assisting the doctor in diagnosis and management of diseases such as osteoporosis.

Bone densitometry uses an ultra-stable dual-energy X-ray source to quantify small changes, ~1%, in a patient’s bone mineral density.

This application requires an X-ray photon energy discriminating sensor (CZT) that has high efficiency, high energy resolution, high count rate performance and exceptional long-term stability to enable Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA).

This successful application of CZT has revolutionized bone densitometry systems, outselling competitive products 2:1. There are now thousands of our CZT-based BMD systems in clinical use, attesting to the performance and reliability of our CZT detectors.

We customise detector assemblies for a number of OEMs and can offer pencil beam and fan beam CZT arrays of various widths and pixel pitches.

CZT-based medical detectors transform patient outcomes, increase patient comfort and lower hospital costs. We customise detector assemblies for OEMs.
