Overview

Access

Clinical confidence and patient convenience.

Aria is a central DXA device designed to meet your bone mineral density (BMD) patient care needs. Physicians no longer have to refer patients to far away hospitals nor rely on pDXA measurements due to budget or space constraints. Providing the convenience of in-house measurements saves patients time and the physician can better track compliance.

Aria is designed to fit in small spaces so there is likely no need to allocate a large room or incur construction costs.

Benefits

High quality images in less than 60 seconds.

The Aria system brings GE Healthcare’s advanced imaging technology to physician offices and clinics. You get high quality images in less than 60 seconds thanks to GE’s patented narrow angle fan beam technology, highly dose efficient detector, and MultiView Image Reconstruction (MVIR).

With these high quality images, you can have a high degree of clinical confidence at the most critical scan sites: spine, femur, and forearm. Plus, Aria’s speed and workflow efficiency is a real advantage for facilities with high patient volumes.

The need for special shielding and protective clothing is elimated in most situations due to Aria’s dose-efficient design. The low dose helps reduce patient concerns about having the test so they will be relaxed and at ease.

The user interface is optimized for simplicity and speed as well:

  • Easily generate individualized fracture risk assessments for your patients using FRAX™*
  • Take advantage of tools such as OneScan, ScanCheck, and Automatic Scan Mode Selection that support a more efficient workflow
  • Use automated database sorting to display trend data and identify patients who require follow-up
  • The patient-reporting feature, Composer, conveniently combines exam results with customizable pre-defined treatment criteria, as well as treatment guidelines from professional societies. Furthermore, a corresponding assessment and recommendation is automatically inserted to summarize results. Composer helps caregivers to generate a comprehensive report with little effort

Technology

Precision

With lower precision error you have the opportunity to detect significant change sooner which can guide treatment decisions and help motivate patient compliance. Aria has achieved precision values of <1% which optimizes your sensitivity to real patient changes. 

The design elements of a DXA scanner greatly affect its precision, image quality, and dose.

The Aria detector uses advanced scintillator material chosen for its blazing speed and brightness. This, coupled with a newly redesigned Solid State Photo Multiplier (SSPM), allows Aria to cleanly separate High Energy and Low Energy X-ray photons – delivering more precise images.

Aria’s narrow angle fan beam and Multi-View image reconstruction corrects magnification errors.

These innovations provide exceptional precision and lower radiation exposure to help you improve patient care.
