Lunar iDXA for Bone Health


Lunar iDXA puts you on the cutting edge with these benefits:


Crisp, high-resolution images and precise measurements to help you diagnose with confidence

With GE’s direct-to-digital technology, Lunar iDXA provides extra-crisp images. In fact, it is comparable to radiographs in identifying and classifying vertebral deformities concerning etiology, grade, and shape, but with a lower dose than conventional X-ray. Lunar iDXA’s latest-generation DXA technology also delivers enhanced precision.  Greater precision provides the ability to detect small and statistically significant changes sooner, which can motivate patient compliance, guide treatment decisions, or reduce the sample size required for clinical trials.   


A breadth of applications and features for a wide range of patients 

With a large scan window plus high weight limit and arm height, the Lunar iDXA comfortably accommodates many patient sizes and conditions. This is why Lunar iDXA with its long list of applications—from visceral fat measurement and pediatric assessment, to small animal scanning—is chosen by leading, hospitals, clinics and physicians around the world.

GE Lunar iDXA


The benefits of Lunar iDXA are supported by these innovative features:


High-resolution images and exacting precision through latest generation DXA technology from GE

  • Research-grade image resolution helps provide a high degree of clinical confidence
  • Enhanced ability to locate artifacts, identify areas of high density and identify bone edges for exceptional accuracy and reproducibility of BMD results
  • Image quality comparable to radiographs helps you identify and classify vertebral deformities based on etiology, grade, and shape, but with a lower dose than conventional X-ray
  • Greater precision assists in detecting small and statistically significant changes sooner, which can help motivate patient compliance, guide treatment decisions, or reduce the sample size required for clinical trials
  • Narrow-angle fan beam technology with Multi-View Image Reconstruction (MVIR) eliminates magnification errors
  • Direct-to-digital detector with a staggered array eliminates dead spots while helping to more accurately identify region-of-interest boundaries


Product features that accommodate a large number of patient sizes and conditions

  • A large scan window and high arm height accommodate patients up to 450 lbs
  • Full suite of bone health applications including BMD, vertebral fracture assessment, pediatrics, orthopedics and more
  • Body composition analysis including visceral fat quantification
