There is no doubt that DEXA bone densitometry has a significant impact on the diagnosis of osteoporosis and the management of osteoporosis care. Still, a challenge remains in finding ways to balance the clinical and economic utility of the modality as reimbursements continue to hover in the basement.

For those looking to serve patients by adding or upgrading a current bone density system, leasing is an option that can help strike the aforementioned balance by spreading the capital cost of DEXA equipment across 36, 48, or even 60 months.  

The average monthly lease rates outlined in the chart below include refurbished GE and Hologic DEXA bone density systems.

DEXA-Body-Composition-Scanning

One of the main goals of the medical profession is to improve patient health in as many ways as possible with the equipment at hand. Sometimes though, it can be easy to overlook some of the potential applications of our equipment and, thereby, miss out on the potential benefits. One such case is using bone density scanners (aka dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry or, DEXA scanners) to measure body composition.

We won't say that nobody is using this tool, its use has actually been on the rise, but we will say that it is still, in many cases, an underused option on DEXA scanners that can help guide patients to healthier lifestyle decisions and imaging facilities to untapped value-adding opportunities. Below, we'll discuss why DEXA body comp is overlooked and which health professionals stand to gain the most by unlocking its potential.
