HOLOGIC Pioneered Pencil-Beam X-Ray Technology

Since the development of the first pencil-beam x-ray system, HOLOGIC has remained at the forefront of DXA bone densitometry. Pencil-beam systems emit dual-energy (alternating high and low), low-dose X-rays, which pass across a region of interest in a narrow, rectilinear pattern. Scanning times (at 60Hz) are two minutes for spine and three minutes for hip.
