  3. Multi-view, Photon Counting DXA Scanner for Quantitative Musculoskeletal Imaging

    SBC: QUANTUM MEDICAL METRICS, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The fragility of osteoporotic bones is largely due to alterations in the underlying structural geometry. Research has demonstrated that it is possible to measure the mechanical geometry of human bones in vivo using dualenergy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans. However DXA scanners are designed to measure bone mineral density (BMD) and not structural geometry. Th ...
