Simplicity – we make it easy to be correct

Dual X-ray and Laser, commonly called DXL, was invented by a team of Swedish doctors, researchers and engineers. It combines a dual-wavelength X-ray source with laser definition of the measurement area. The result is that soft tissue and fatty tissue are more accurately excluded from the bone mineral density results.​

The Calscan results are virtually operator-independent due to its automatic region of interest. This feature finds the correct scanning site on each patient automatically, allowing different operators to obtain the same high-quality results. In addition, Calscan uses automatic digital calibration before each patient scan, further enhancing the reproducibility and accuracy of results.​

The messy gels and operator-dependent positioning required by other devices are not necessary with Calscan. With a scanning time of less than one minute, automatic calibration and automatic acquisition of the region of interest, you can scan as many patients as you like – without needing to book an extra visit.

The DXL Calscan Workstation software is a very user-friendly, Windows-based program that keeps a history of all your patient scans.​

Graphic presentation of multiple patient scans shows BMD progress in response to therapy, supporting compliance. Scan results can even be enlarged on-screen during patient consultations.

Internal Calibration

An internal phantom automatically calibrates the system before each patient scan. X-ray systems can often experience “drift” during use, while DXL Calscan digitally adjusts for these variations, ensuring the best possible results.​

Automatic Region of Interest

The Auto-ROI function finds the correct scan site for each patient, allowing operator independent results. The coefficient of variation is 1.2% in vivo, as shown in multiple clinical studies.

Monitoring of response to treatment is made easy, as Calscan will find the same region of interest on follow-up visits. The calcaneus, with 95% trabecular bone, is the most trabecular-rich bone in the body.
