We have the state-of-the-art upgraded Hologic Discovery dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) system with advanced features including Vertebral Fracture Assessment (VFA). As the result, we are capable to assess patients who may benefit from appropriate evaluation, prevention, diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. In this era of constrained health-care resources, there is a definite need for an efficient and measurable system for a well-balanced disease management.
Now is obviously the time to get serious about timely diagnosis of osteoporosis and recognize it as a major public health issue. Bone mass, measured by bone densitometry (DXA), is an invaluable aid in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. Those of us who evaluate and treat patients with this disease know the difficulties faced by people who are diagnosed, the challenges of it’s management, and the devastating consequences of hip and vertebral fractures.
To millions of Americans, osteoporosis is a “great unknown”. The need to educate and make patients aware of the seriousness of this disease is critical, and appropriate diagnosis is therefore crucial.
We have made a long term commitment to provide a comprehensive program with an emphasis on quality, education, prevention, and treatment of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone disorders. We continue our quality services to the patients and physicians in the community and improve public awareness and skills of health care professionals in the field of osteoporosis.
