GE Lunar Achilles Express Bone Ultrasonometer

Achilles Express reports are concise and easy to interpret. The patient’s result is expressed as a T-score and as a percentage compared to the reference population. The results are also graphed against the reference population. The Achilles ultrasonometer has been proven in prospective studies to predict fracture risk in post-menopausal women, ages 45 to 75+ years. These studies show Achilles to be as effective as DXA of the femur in predicting hip fracture risk.
