Lunar iDXA puts you on the cutting edge with these benefits:

Precise measurement to help you detect small changes sooner
Lunar iDXA’s latest-generation DXA technology delivers enhanced precision. Greater precision provides the ability to detect small and statistically significant changes sooner than less precise systems, which can motivate patient compliance, guide treatment decisions, or reduce the sample size required for clinical trials.   

A breadth of applications and features for a wide range of patients
With a large scan window plus high weight limit and arm height, the Lunar iDXA comfortably accommodates many patient sizes and conditions. This is why Lunar iDXA with its long list of applications--from visceral fat measurement and pediatric body composition assessment, to small animal scanning—is chosen by leading, hospitals, clinics and physicians around the world.
