Fujifilm India has installed  its powerful Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) machine: FDX Visionary-DR at the Center for Sports Injury in Delhi. The Center for Sports Injury is the premier sports health and wellness facility that specializes in orthopedics, sports surgery, sports medicine, sports imaging, sports physiotherapy, rehabilitation, fitness and counselling.
The initiative aims to deliver high-quality and fast bone-density scans, commonly known as DEXA scans, to diagnose bone-related health conditions or evaluate the risk of developing such problems. Fujifilm India endeavors to make excellent diagnostic capabilities accessible to bone densitometry practitioners nationwide.
Bone-related health diseases such as osteoporosis are widespread in India, with estimates indicating that 61 million individuals suffer from this condition. Furthermore, the incidence of osteoporosis tends to occur 10 - 20 years earlier here, in comparison to Western countries. Tackling this, the bone densitometry scan serves as an effective tool to accurately predict the chances of fractures or abnormalities in the upcoming years.
The FDX Visionary-DR machine delivers a complete diagnostic experience with a wide range of applications and routine examinations for orthopedics, paediatrics, lateral spine, morphometry and whole body. It features a 3D-DXA technology that uses routine bone-mineral-density images to create 3D models of the femur, bringing in new information about bone structure for accurate diagnosis and adapted treatment procedures. Based on a 4-line, 64-element multi-array detector, the machine’s remarkable 2D Fan Beam is designed to provide the highest image resolution for a precise diagnosis and perform quick 15-second assessments per site, making it one of the most powerful solutions available in the market. Additionally, it offers advanced fat, muscle and lean medical parameters through its body composition tool which is essential in sports medicine, weight management and medical practice fields.
“In India, the growing prevalence of bone-related health conditions highlights the urgent need for preventive measures in healthcare. Through imaging technologies, strategic partnerships and awareness drives, our mission is to effectively diagnose, treat and manage bone health conditions and pave the way towards a healthier future for India” said Chander Shekhar Sibal, vice president & HOD, healthcare business, Fujifilm India.
Osteoporosis occurs due to excessive bone loss, insufficient bone formation or a combination of both factors. Addressing this, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry or DEXA scans measure bone loss by utilizing a minimal dose of ionizing radiation to generate images of internal body structures such as the hip, spine and forearm.
