|GE Lunar Prodigy
New technology and therapy at
the New London Cancer Center
GE Lunar Prodigy Densitometer Machine
The Lunar Prodigy by GE was the first bone densitometer
that was designed to look beyond the bone mineral
density. This machines technology has the ability to
detect subtle bone changes. It also delivers fast scans
and has some exceptional capabilities that cover a wide
range of clinical applications. The GE Lunar Prodigy
uses a unique software program called enCORE that
optimizes productivity. This program uses automation
breakthroughs to save time and produce consistent
results for your patients.
The GE Lunar Prodigy has a narrow-angle fan beam system
that makes multiple passes across the patient to obtain
multiple images with each of the images overlapping the
previous one. The narrow angle of the fan beam system
reduces the distortion that is due to magnification.
This machine also uses the Multi-View image
reconstruction that allows for an accurate diagnosis.
Calculates your risk for major osteoporotic fracture or
Reclast Infusion therapy
Reclast A recent study in The New England Journal of
Medicine involving more than 7,700 women showed that Reclast reduced spine fractures by 70% and hip fractures
by 41%, compared with placebo. The reduction in spine
fractures was sustained over three years. Reclast
infusion is given over 15 minutes once a year. Patients
should continue taking Calcium supplementation daily.
The infusion is given over 15
minutes and is repeated along with your bone density
once every year.
