Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Bone Densitometers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: )

Bone densitometer devices allow non-invasive, quantitative measurement of bone mass or density. Presently, the demand for bone densitometers is high and is continuously risingas it caters to the needs of the growing elderly population and the high incidence rates of osteoporosis and various associated fractures.Various methods available for measuring bone mineral density and strength use ionizing radiation or ultrasound. The preferred sites of bone density measurement are axial/central skeleton (hip and spine) or peripheral skeleton (forearm, wrist, heel, phalanges).

At present a broad range of bone densitometers along with number of technologies are available in the market for bone density measurement. The most accurate and widely accepted technique is axial/central dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), while axial/central and peripheral quantitative computed tomography (QCT) are the only current methods which provide an actual volumetric measurement of bone mass.Axial DEXA bone densitometers form the largest segment,in the total market, owing to their improved accuracy and precision and wide acceptance by the end users. Need for trained professionals and high cost as well as huge device size leads to lowering the adoption of axial DEXA systems, particularly in financially lagged countries. Thus growing preference for cost containment measures as well as introduction of portable devices along with increase in awareness for disease diagnosis will together aid in sustaining the growing acceptance of bone densitometers worldwide. 

Various other methods used to measure bone density include peripheral DEXA, single energy X-ray absorptiometry, radiographic absorptiometry and quantitative ultrasound. These procedures are generally done in a clinic, hospital, or free-standing radiology facility.Portable bone densitometers are generally preferred for the purpose of mass-screening, where majorly devices preferred are DEXA or quantitative ultrasound units.However, the bone density measurement by portable devices is not as precise as the non-portable methods because of the restricted single bone site testing.
