Multi-Site Advantage
Omnisense's unique probe technology is the only one of its kind. By enabling measurement at multiple skeletal sites, the Omnisense probe system provides you with greater diagnostic ability and enhanced measurement flexibility.

Getting The Whole Picture
Due to the systemic nature of osteoporosis, having a multiple site option provides an overall picture of the skeleton and offers many advantages to the physician:

  Combining measurement results of different skeletal       sites can optimize fracture risk assessment.

  Using multiple measurement sites enables the       physician to overcome the dilemma of how to diagnose       patients who:
       have a clinical indication of osteoporosis but whose
           measurement results do not support this.
       are not clearly defined and require a more
           conclusive diagnosis.


Monitoring Response To Treatment
Different bones respond to treatment at varying rates and degrees. Using multi-site measurements, the physician can identify and monitor small bone changes in a relatively short period of time, allowing more effective monitoring and treatment decisions.
