Horizon WI

A DXA system that does more

Osteoporosis is a growing healthcare crisis affecting millions of women and men worldwide The healthcare costs associated with osteoporosis are staggering, and the effect on your patients quality of life can be devastating

While porous bones and fractures may not be visible from the outside, the effects can be Life threatening. Low bone mass can afflict men and women of all nationalities. People may not know they have osteoporosis until it’s too late Early detection and treatment can mean a lifetime of strength for all of your patients. And the Discovery” DXA system from Hologic is the key to early detection

Whether you are a large hospital or just beginning to incorporate bone densitometry into your practice, Hologic has a high performance system to suite your needs

The Horizon DXA system is the latest in densitometry technology, but the dual energy X-ray does more than just measure bone density. The Horizon DXA system has features for a complete fracture risk assessment and more.

Powerful images. Clear answers.

Our technology:

  • High-resolution ceramic digital detectors array featuring ultra fast, high output, low noise ceramic detectors that provide better bone mapping and images.
  • High frequency dual energy X-ray source that is smaller and lighter than previous generations.
  • Dynamic Calibration system, delivering real-time pixel-by-pixel calibration through bone and tissue equivalents for greater long-term measurement stability.
  • OnePass single-sweep scanning designed to eliminate beam overlap errors and image distortion found in rectilinear acquisition techniques that delivers superb image quality and precision.

A DXA system that does more

Single energy femur exam
Manage patients’ concerns about long-term bisphosphonate use with the 15-second single energy femur scan that allows visualization of potential incomplete atypical femur fractures.

Vertebral fracture assessment:
The HD Instant Vertebral Fracture assessment dramatically improves the detection of vertebral fractures by doubling the resolution of previously available techniques with a low dose, single-energy image.

Abdominal aortic calcification:
The HD Instant Vertebral Fracture assessment also allows you to visualize calcified plaque in the abdominal aorta, which may be a significant indicator of heart disease and stroke. Exclusive to Hologic, this feature provides vital information that may link coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death for women.

Advanced Body Composition assessment:

With InnerCore Visceral Fat Assessment, the Advanced Body Composition assessment is a more comprehensive way to measure body composition compared to other methods on the market. It provides you % body fat, total lean mass, bone density, limb comparison for muscle imbalance detection, visceral fat and more. We call it the BodyLogic scan.
