It’s a new year and 2014, for better or for worse, is in the past. In the Chinese Zodiac calendar, 2015 is the year of the Sheep.

In significant parts of the world, and America in particular, people’s pets are often considered part of the family. It’s common for pet owners to spend thousands of dollars on healthcare for their animals, including fees for CT Scans, MRIs, C-Arms, Ultrasounds and general X-Rays… money that they don’t spend on dream vacations, better vehicles, and other creature (no pun intended) comforts. It’s also common for wealthier individuals to spend exorbitant amounts on their pets’ care, just because they can.

Everything You Want to Know About Bone Densitometers

Posted by Alex Silbergleit on Thu, Sep 18, 2014 @ 11:09 AM

Have you had a bone scan done to measure bone density and fracture risk? If so, then you probably know what a bone densitometer is. It’s a specific kind of x-ray system that uses two x-ray beams to measure the calcium content of bone to reflect bone density and bone fracture risk. Each x-ray beam has a different energy level that’s aimed at the patient’s bones. The soft tissue absorption is subtracted, and then the Body Mineral Density (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry is the most popular bone density measurement technology used.
