Simplicity – we make it easy to be correct
Dual X-ray and Laser, commonly called DXL, was invented by a team of Swedish doctors, researchers and engineers. It combines a dual-wavelength X-ray source with laser definition of the measurement area. The result is that soft tissue and fatty tissue are more accurately excluded from the bone mineral density results.
The Calscan results are virtually operator-independent due to its automatic region of interest. This feature finds the correct scanning site on each patient automatically, allowing different operators to obtain the same high-quality results. In addition, Calscan uses automatic digital calibration before each patient scan, further enhancing the reproducibility and accuracy of results.
The messy gels and operator-dependent positioning required by other devices are not necessary with Calscan. With a scanning time of less than one minute, automatic calibration and automatic acquisition of the region of interest, you can scan as many patients as you like – without needing to book an extra visit.
The DXL Calscan Workstation software is a very user-friendly, Windows-based program that keeps a history of all your patient scans.
Graphic presentation of multiple patient scans shows BMD progress in response to therapy, supporting compliance. Scan results can even be enlarged on-screen during patient consultations.
An internal phantom automatically calibrates the system before each patient scan. X-ray systems can often experience “drift” during use, while DXL Calscan digitally adjusts for these variations, ensuring the best possible results.
Automatic Region of Interest
The Auto-ROI function finds the correct scan site for each patient, allowing operator independent results. The coefficient of variation is 1.2% in vivo, as shown in multiple clinical studies.
Monitoring of response to treatment is made easy, as Calscan will find the same region of interest on follow-up visits. The calcaneus, with 95% trabecular bone, is the most trabecular-rich bone in the body.
