Three New Studies Provide Evidence of the Effectiveness of a New Device In Predicting Osteoporosis Fractures
Rehovot, Israel (March 7, 1999) Three studies conducted by the University of California at San Francisco (UCFS) Arthritis and Osteoporosis Center provide conclusive evidence on the effectiveness of a new device in predicting osteoporosis-related fractures.

All three studies conducted at UCSF used the Sunlight OmnisenseTM, a unique ultrasound-based device. The studies found that Omnisense is a highly accurate device for diagnosing osteoporosis.

The Sunlight Omnisense uses a unique technology that provides information about the strength of the bone itself, without the effect of the surrounding soft tissues.

In addition, the Omnisense is the only device of its kind that measures multiple skeletal sites, providing a more comprehensive and accurate picture of the skeletal status and a more accurate diagnosis of osteoporosis.

The studies were presented in the conference of American Association of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) in San Francisco in December 1998.
