QCT Pro Bone Density Measurement


  • 3D Volumetric Bone Densitometry is performed with QCT Pro technology at Sonomed Medical Imaging Center. QCT Pro has a different technology than DEXA devices that perform classical bone densitometry.

    Approximately 55% of fractures due to osteoporosis are undetectable with DEXA Systems. Therefore, QCT is preferred for accurate diagnosis.

     

    What is the QCT Pro Bone Density Measurement?

    QCT is an innovative and technological medical software that allows the measurement of bone density of the vertebra and femur regions with a digital tomography device.

     

    What are the Features of QCT Imaging?

    ⇒ QCT takes approximately 2 minutes. In DEXA devices, this time is approximately 25 minutes.

    ⇒ During QCT imaging, the vertebrae and femur are scanned to diagnose osteopenia or osteoporosis.

    ⇒ QCT is a reliable BMD measurement system approved by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

    ⇒ QCT is one of the 3 reliable and effective bone density measurement systems among the bone measurement systems chosen by the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF).
