The Sahara machine by Hologic is a simple, convenient and practical way for clinics to give their patients a bone assessment. This bone densitometer requires no radiations which improves the patient’s acceptance for the exam. You will also not be required to have a registered x-ray technologist to operate the machine. An exam with this machine takes less than one minute to complete. It is fast and the only ultrasound bone densitometer machine that will estimate BMD and determine T-scores.
The Hologic Sahara weighs only 22 pounds and comes with a built-in handle that allows the machine to be portable. This machine is great for those with a small office space. The space that is required to perform an exam with the Hologic Sahara including the chair is less than the footprint of a standard office desk.
