Hologic Horizon C Densitometry System
Hologic, the pioneer in X-ray based bone densitometry, takes advanced health assessment to a new level with the Horizon DXA System. This multi-faceted system can help clinicians assess bone health, body composition and cardiovascular risk — critical elements that will help patients keep life in motion.
The Horizon DXA System features the latest innovations in bone densitometry technology; including a new digital high resolution ceramic detector array, as well as a new high frequency X-ray Generator. When paired with our exclusive OnePass™ true fan-beam acquisition geometry, Horizon delivers rapid, dual-energy bone density measurements in a single-sweep, eliminating beam overlap errors and image distortion found in rectilinear acquisition techniques. We’ve also improved our Dynamic Calibration System, which delivers pixel-by-pixel calibration through bone and tissue equivalents — for greater long-term precision. The adjustable aperture is now completely lead-free. This, combined with the elimination of cadmium from the detectors, currently makes the Horizon DXA system the greenest on the market.
