Episode 6 : Echolight Medical a new technology for bone scans

Bone Boot Camp Podcast with Echolight Medical a new technology for bone scans

Although the Echolight technology has been around for over 10 years, Sarah only heard about it in the last 6 months when Echolight S.p.a. Opened a US office.

When Sarah heard about the first clinically available method for the direct non-ionizing(no radiation) measurement of lumbar and femoral bone mineral density (BMD) she knew there was an amazing new opportunity for preventative action and reliable decision making.

The device, EchoS, utilizes proprietary R.E.M.S. (Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry) technology to scan the lumbar vertebrae and proximal femur. The EchoS rapidly generates a medical report that includes BMD, T-score and Z-score. In addition, the system automatically assesses the quality of bone micro architecture, independent of BMD, and provides a five-year probability of a major osteoporosis fracture.  

 I invited 3 women and myself each from a different decade to receive a scan at my home studio.  All 4 of us are physically active women.  I invite you to turn on your curiosity and see how the day went.  As a final note, we will be doing another podcast with non exercisers across 4 decades as well.
