StrengthX is excited to offer a new concept of bone health monitoring in Asheville through the innovative R.E.M.S. technology. A fast and simple radiation-free test lets us evaluate the bone micro-architecture at the lumbar vertebrae and femoral neck. The Echolight Scan is a step into the next generation of healthcare for prevention, early diagnosis, and monitoring of bone health.
Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry
Radiation-free technology for assessing bone density and quality on the lumbar vertebrae and proximal femur through a revolutionary approach to characterize bone microarchitecture using radio frequency signals acquired during a simple ultrasound scan. The method overcomes all the main limitations of DXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) and QUS (Quantitative Bone Ultrasound).
The most advanced bone densitometer for bone health assessment for your daily clinical activities.
Through an ultrasound scan of axial anatomical sites such as the spine and femur, this innovative technology allows measuring bone mineral density without ionizing radiation by processing a true bone identity card. Besides ensuring a high level of accuracy, it does not require radiological protection, it is easy to use, and its distinctive transportability facilitates the use thereof among patients hospitalized with fractures who cannot be transferred and the continuity of care at home.
Furthermore, the absence of radiation allows this method to be used on a heterogeneous variety of patients, including pediatric patients, patients at risk of secondary osteoporosis, diabetic patients, patients who have undergone cancer treatments, and pregnant women.
