Norland's New Bone Densitometer Accommodates Subjects too Large for Standard DXA Systems
Date:3/25/2017

Norland at Swissray is pleased to announce the release of the ELITE DXA, a new bone densitometer and body composition analyzers for large subjects. The ELITE DXA has an active scan window, which is more than double that of existing bone densitometers. Historically, subjects that are too wide or long to fit in the scan area could not undergo an accurate total body bone density or body composition study. The ELITE DXA can fully scan subjects as tall as 90” and as wide as 54” while the next largest scanner has an active scan window of 78” x 26”. Clinicians tracking long term changes of bariatric surgery patients, researchers focused on obesity, and athletic teams monitoring sports performance and nutritional needs of their athletes now have a gold standard tool for monitoring body composition.

Katie Knappenberger, Sports Dietitian at a Midwestern University Athletic Department recently implemented the first ELITE DXA. In Katie’s words the ELITE was selected because “we love that our larger and taller athletes can lay comfortably on the table. We are not concerned about scrunching them into the scannable area and the possibility of having to repeat the scan because they moved. Also because of Norland’s lowest industry dose of radiation per scan, I feel safer as a practitioner doing 100’s of scans per year.”
