XtremeCT

XtremeCT is specially designed to perform high-resolution pQCT studies at distal tibia and radius of humans for clinical in vivo assessment of osteoporosis.

A low X-ray dose allows regular follow-up measurements and powerful true-3D evaluation software automatically matches cortical and trabecular bone regions to previous measurements for direct comparison of density and structure characteristics.

Density Parameters

Structural Parameters

  • Cortical Density
  • Trabecular Density
  • Cortical Thickness
  • Trabecular Separation
  • Trabecular Number
  • Volume Fraction

The XtremeCT has been replaced in our standard offer by the XtremeCT II but can still be available on request.
