Product Description

Schick AccuDexa2 Portable Bone Densitometer - Tabletop DEXA Scanner for hand

A unique peripheral screening device which measures low bone density using the Intermediate Phalange of the middle finger.


FEATURES: 

  • Lightweight; Only 27 Lbs ( 12.5 Kilos). 
  • Compact: 14.75W x 11.5D and 11.75 inches high ( 37.5W x 29.0 D x 30.0 CM high).
  • Fast: Complete printed results in one minute.
  • Large 8-gigabyte memory: stores up to 4,000 patient images. 
  • Precise laser positioning device for higher accuracy in test results and repeat studies. 
  • Software easily upgradable through USB port. 
  • Results accepted by Medicare and private insurance under separate CPT code. 
  • Very low radiation dose to finger only!

The ACCUDXA2 Bone Mineral Density (BMD) Assessment System provides a quick, convenient and economical measure for determining a patient's fracture risk.
Though small in size, ACCUDXA2 is packed with sophisticated technology. Everything you need to quickly and confidently assess your patient's BMD is housed within the unit. The simple test can be performed right in your office and does not require the removal of garments or the application of messy gels or creams. Results are achieved utilizing super-accurate Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA), the industry standard for BMD.
Simply place the patient's hand in the unit, follow a simple set of commands on the view screen, and in 30 seconds you have the results you need.

Features and Benefits

  • Uses DEXA technology, the gold standard in bone densitometry.
  • Medicare ($35-$50) and most private insurance companies ($75) currently reimburse, giving potential for quick return on investment. ACCUDXA2's ease of use and short test time will help attract new patients.
  • Enables physicians to comply with National Osteoporosis Testing recommendations, and helps manage periodic osteoporosis screening for at-risk patients.
  • Scatter to the operator is only 1/15,000th of the weekly radiation exposure limit. Patient exposure is 0.0003 uSv or 1/150,000th of a typical chest x-ray.
  • Low precision error (<1%) allows for the detection of changes over time.
  • Telephone and e-mail support provided.
  • FDA Approved

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What type of technology does the accuDEXA use?
The accuDEXA utilizes dual-energy X-ray absorbtiometry (DEXA), the standard in bone densitometry, to assess the bone mineral density (BMD) of the middle phalange of the third finger.

2. Who is qualified to operate an accuDEXA?
All MDs and radiation technologists can operate the accuDEXA. In many states, nurse practitioners and other properly trained individuals can operate the device as well.

3. What is the precision and accuracy of the test? 
The precision in clinical subjects is within 1%. The accuracy error (SEE=1.8%) is lower than other peripheral and axial techniques.

4. Does finger BMD predict fracture?
There is clear evidence showing that the finger BMD helps predict generalized fracture as well as other peripheral and axial techniques.

5. How long does an accudexa exam take?
An entire accuDEXA exam takes less than 2 minutes. Scan time is less than 10 seconds.
