Working together to Revolutionize Osteoporosis Screening
IBEX Innovations Ltd., a pioneering force in medical X-ray technology, proudly announces a major milestone as it integrates the IBEX Bone Health (BH) technology into DensityScan™, an advanced AI-driven workflow for Agfa Radiology Solutions DR X-ray equipment. This groundbreaking solution is poised to reshape the landscape of osteoporosis screening by offering automatic detection from routine X-ray images, providing a cost-effective and accessible solution for healthcare professionals and patients.
DensityScan™, powered by IBEX BH, takes center stage in addressing the critical need for osteoporosis screening, enabling earlier detection, diagnosis, and treatment of this condition. By harnessing the capabilities of IBEX BH, DensityScan™ measures subregional areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and estimates the T-score from wrist X-ray images. This technology provides earlier identification of osteoporosis, with the result automatically available to clinicians in secondary captures archived by the MUSICA workstation. This provides a valuable starting point for assessing fracture risk and initiating diagnosis or treatment.
Earlier Detection through Opportunistic Screening
Every compatible routine X-ray becomes an opportunity for automated osteoporosis screening, making DensityScan™ an invaluable tool for radiology. Osteoporosis is a widespread condition, impacting millions of patients each year with a significant portion going undiagnosed and untreated. Early detection is paramount, and DensityScan™ offers a cost-effective and easily accessible method of opportunistically screening patients from a wrist X-ray, already requested for other purposes.
A Game-Changer for Clinicians and Patients
IBEX Bone Health’s integration into DensityScan™ signifies a pivotal shift in healthcare technology, and it stands as a testament to IBEX’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of innovation to improve patients’ lives.
IBEX CEO Paul Scott emphasizes the potential of this technology:
“Routine access to osteoporosis screening through a simple wrist X-ray offers a route to earlier and more widespread diagnosis of this silent, chronic disease.”
“Diagnosis is the first step to change, and we are excited to be working with Agfa Radiology Solutions to put this technology into the hands of clinicians. Wrist X-rays are just the start, and we will be widening compatibility to screen even more patients in the future.”Dr Paul Scott, CEO, IBEX Innovations
Paul Danini, Global Software Marketing and Product Manager at Agfa Radiology Solutions, underlines the significance of DensityScan™ to Agfa’s vision:
“DensityScan™ is a key part of Agfa’s vision to transform radiology by bringing intelligent and definitive answers to patients through X-ray imaging. This will especially reduce the risk for women, half of whom will break a bone due to osteoporosis during their lifetime.”Paul Danini, Global Software Marketing Manager, Agfa Radiology Solutions
