I have exciting news for anyone interested in bone health and osteoporosis. Mr Nick Birch, Consultant Spinal Specialist FRCS (ORth) will be offering clinics at my studio using the EchoS, the next generation device for early diagnosis of osteoporosis. Going beyond DEXA and Quantitative Ultrasound, the REMS technology in EchoS is a radiation-free method to evaluate skeletal integrity at easily accessible peripheral sites, including the femur and spine.
EchoS has advantages over DEXA, not only because it’s radiation-free, but also because it assesses bone micro-architecture, bone quality and bone density when predicting the future risk of fractures. EchoS is as accurate as DEXA when it measures bone density, but it can detect changes in the quantity and quality of bone a hundred times better than DEXA.
EchoS isn’t operator dependent unlike DEXA, allowing it to provide fast, accurate results.
Unlike DEXA, EchoS is completely portable, which means it brings the assessment of bone health to you, at a time and a place of your convenience.
Please contact me for more information and appointments.
