Norland XR-800 SeriesModel XR-800 Whole Body Scanner

Providing the most advanced technology for DXA. The Model XR-800 offers the largest size range in the whole body scanner market. The table accommodates patients up to 202kg within a scan window area of 193cm x 67cm.
Bone Density Measurement

Osteoporosis is a disease marked by reduced bone strength leading to an increased risk of fractures. About 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass. Osteoporosis is the major underlying cause of fractures in postmenopausal women and the elderly. These fractures can occur in the bones of the hip, spine, and wrist, but any bone can be affected. Sometimes these fractures can be disabling, especially when they occur in the hip. Patients with osteoporosis usually have no symptoms before fracture, as such early diagnosis and treatment of the disease are of great importance to the quality of life in these patients. Early diagnosis can prevent acute or chronic pain, limitation in the ability to do daily activities, depression and loss of independence. Norland’s dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) XR600/XR800 can measure central sites, such as lumbar spine and hip, as well as distal forearm. Norland DXA is noninvasive, rapid, accurate, and safe. The high precision and accuracy of Norland DXA allows testing of central sites to be used for monitoring as well as diagnosis of osteoporosis.
Body Composition Measurement

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese. Obesity can and usually does lower overall quality of life. Obese individuals may not participate in the level of physical activity that other people enjoy. Other weight-related issues that may affect quality of life include type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Norland DXA assessment directly measures Fat Mass, Lean Mass, Bone Mineral Content and the % Total Body BMC/Fat Free Mass for the Whole Body or isolated regions of the body in a swift, painless, noninvasive measurement. Norland DXA provides results for bone, lean and fat content in 8 default regions of the body or in operator defined regions of interest. DXA measurements allow total body or regional fat, lean or bone mass to be followed over time so that the effect of disease or treatment can be monitored. Also the Norland DXA provides the Total Percent Fat as well as the Siri and Brozek Underwater Weight Equivalent Fat Percentages.
Radiation Dose

Norland technology employs a pencil-beam design minimizing radiation scatter for the benefit of operators. Norland technology also applies its exclusive dynamic filter system so that only the x-ray needed to obtain good study statistics is used. As a result Norland generates the lowest patient radiation doses in the market.
