Sectra (SECTB): Research Study Shows That Simple Hand X-Rays Can Predict Painful and Expensive Hip Fractures


11/21/2012 10:52:10 AM

LINKÖPING, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A research team at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm has conducted a study that shows how Sectra’s online service, Sectra OneScreen, provides an efficient and inexpensive method for early identification of people in the “at-risk group” for osteoporosis. Sectra OneScreen can be combined with routine mammography examinations. The study, published in European Radiology, shows that Sectra OneScreen is fully comparable with other more expensive methods currently in use to predict hip fractures caused by osteoporosis, a disease affecting one in two women. Sectra OneScreen can easily be combined with mammograms by taking a hand X-ray at the same time as breast images using the same radiology equipment. The extra examination takes less than 30 seconds. With this study, researchers have shown that the technique is equivalent to DXA, the golden standard for predicting hip fractures.
