PRODIGY is an affordable fan-beam densitometer that is total-body ready so that you will not be caught short for clinical management (pediatrics, renal disease, growth hormone, body composition) and research (90% of trials require total-body). PRODIGY delivers the best of fan-beam and pencil-beam densitometry by combining rapid throughput and superb image quality with excellent precision and a 10 times lower dose.
Only densitometer with SmartFAN This exclusive feature eliminates image magnification, blurring, and high patient dose inherent in competitive fan-beam densitometers. It automatically locates the bone thus eliminating the need for scout scans. DualFemur test minimizes time and operator effort for a complete study of both femurs. The simplified user interface guides the operator through all measurement and analysis procedures.
PRODIGY outperforms competitive pencil- and fan-beam densitometers Its excellent precision allows confident monitoring of small changes in patient bone density. AutoAnalysis ensures repeatable results with minimal operator intervention.
High-resolution images facilitate easy identification and exclusion of artifacts The advanced solid-state array detector is energy sensitive, an exclusive feature that allows image acquisition with 10-20 times lower dose than competitive fan-beam densitometers.
Clear results are easy to read and simple to interpret Appropriate reference populations are included for patient comparison. PRODIGY utilizes the most extensive databases available, including NHANES, to assist the physician in making a confident comparison. Adjustments can be made for body weight.
PRODIGY operates under the familiar Windows NT environment. PRODIGY is also DICOM-capable for connection to existing radiology and hospital networks.
PRODIGY requires a minimum of valuable room space, even smaller than competitive densitometers that offer only spine and femur scans. Only the scanner arm movesnot the table. This mechanical simplicity ensures years of reliable results and dependable uptime.
