South Central’s Radiology Department has expanded its health and wellness services available to men and women with the addition of the Horizon® DXA system from Hologic®. The imaging technology of the Horizon DXA system provides superb image quality with advanced diagnostic tools to support early detection and treatment of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a growing healthcare crisis affecting millions of women and men worldwide. 77% of American women with osteoporosis are undiagnosed (and therefore untreated). Fortunately, osteoporosis is detectable and treatable and testing is safe and non-invasive. The Horizon® DXA system at SCRMC enables new dimensions in care, including greater insights into biomechanical strength, BMD measurements of the entire skeleton, and many other clinical applications.
