The Ultimate Health Machine

Key features that make the GE Lunar iDXA ideal for patients and practices today

It’s difficult, if not impossible, to overemphasize the benefits of the Lunar iDXA with CoreScan, GE’s flagship dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry system.

Combating metabolic diseases, caring for an aging population, and addressing growing obesity rates requires the best technology medicine can offer. The Lunar iDXA with CoreScan is that technology. It is possibly the ultimate health machine.

GE’s state-of-the-art densitometer stands ready to make a real and immediate positive impact on patients and health practices today and promises to be an enduring platform for many years to come.

This guide provides an overview of the array of features in the Lunar iDXA. But it’s more than a glimpse of the Lunar iDXA’s power. It’s also a glimpse into the future of healthcare. As we’re about to see, it’s a future that is available today.

Best in Body Composition — Bar None

Many people continue to rely on weight scales and body mass index (BMI) calculations to gauge their health. Time and again, however, studies find nothing as effective as body composition examinations offered by machines such as the Lunar iDXA.

The Lunar iDXA provides the gold standard of body composition testing. It quantifies with remarkable precision a patient’s:

  • Fat mass
  • Lean mass
  • Bone density

Tens of millions of people report using health apps each year. But the evidence suggests such use is not moving the needle on the nation’s health.

User abandonment of such apps is a problem. One study found that the top reason respondents stopped using the apps was that entering data into them proved to be too demanding. It required too much effort to use them every day.

Even with multiple scans over a 12-month period, a body composition scan is less demanding than a smartphone health app. This ease of access and consistent use may translate to noticeable diet, exercise, and lifestyle progress.

The Pitfalls of Visceral Fat

With links to metabolic diseases and insulin resistance, a complete picture of a body’s visceral fat can help make dramatic inroads toward improved health. That’s because visceral fat creates health risks unlike any other kind of fat.

Just a short list of some of the health problems associated with excess visceral fat reads like a rogues gallery of some of today’s most debilitating issues:

  • Heart attacks
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Breast and colorectal cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Even among people who register a “normal” BMI, visceral fat is strongly linked to an increased risk of death. That’s a risk subcutaneous fat doesn’t carry.

For many people, visceral fat is a severe threat hiding in plain sight. The Lunar iDXA with CoreScan quantifies visceral fat. In doing so, it’s a useful tool in managing various cardiometabolic diseases.

Determining Bone Density Health

In an aging population, a broken bone means more than a trip to the hospital and an itchy cast. One study found that women ages 65–69 who break a hip are five times more likely to die within a year than women of the same age who don’t break a hip. Helping patients maintain bone health has always been important; with today’s aging population, the matter is sure to reach unprecedented levels of awareness and urgency.

In the fight against bone health degradation, the iDXA is in rarefied air thanks to:

  • High-resolution images that bring essential details into sharp focus. That includes all skeletal sites such as vertebral endplates, intervertebral spaces, and proximal femur details.
  • Edge detection that delivers best-in-class accuracy and reproducibility of bone mineral density results.
  • The ability to detect notably high density for outstanding measurement accuracy.

An effective bone density assessment requires subtracting soft tissue values. This ensures that only bone mineral density (BMD) is measured. That means the entire body must be considered: not just the bone, but lean tissue and fat, too. The alternative is a less accurate assessment calibrated to average patients. To achieve an accurate assessment, the Lunar iDXA features six points of calibration:

  1. Normal,
  2. Osteopenic, and
  3. Osteoporotic BMD values.

Plus:

  1. Lean,
  2. Normal, and
  3. Obese values.

Those six points of calibration help the Lunar iDXA provide the clinical confidence necessary to guide patients to better health accurately.

Bone Health Helpers

Related to DEXA’s bone density capabilities — but worthy of a separate spotlight — are FRAX and TBS.

  • The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX). FRAX makes a valued complement to DEXA’s bone density capabilities. A brief series of questions designed to evaluate fracture risk in patients, FRAX effortlessly weaves into an efficient DEXA scan process.
  • The trabecular bone score (TBS) is similarly beneficial. TBS utilizes information provided by a DEXA scan to gauge the structural condition of a patient’s bone microarchitecture. The contribution of sarcopenia (muscle loss) to fall scenarios within our aging population elevates the importance of TBS for clinical purposes.

FRAX and TBS demonstrate that the Lunar iDXA — while a powerful device — needn’t exist in a diagnostic vacuum but can contribute to a valuable array of tools and approaches.

Accommodations for Anxious Patients

Colonoscopies, prostate exams, breast exams. People avoid these and other life-saving procedures every day. They do so because of temporary discomfort and fear. “Fear of bad news, fear of an uncomfortable test, fear of discussing something intimate,” as The New York Times put it.

While there’s no component to the Lunar iDXA that eliminates those issues, there are several aspects of the device that can help combat them.

The Lunar iDXA is:

  • Swift (both in the testing and reporting), accurate, and — perhaps most importantly for some — non-invasive. Patients aren’t even required to remove clothing. (Loose clothing is recommended, and anything metal is prohibited).
  • Accessible by patients of up to 450 pounds.
  • Straightforward; the clarity and specificity of reports generated by the iDXA may help combat patient non-compliance.

A Straightforward Four Steps

The iDXA Lunar makes for an efficient patient workflow:

  1. Sign in for the appointment (which do not need to be longer than 15 minutes thanks to the speed of the scan itself)
  2. Scan with the iDXA Lunar
  3. Study the results
  4. Share the findings (with a short report provided in full color) and a plan to address them

While the “A” in iDXA doesn’t stand for “accommodating,” such a straightforward process can help reassure hesitant patients who might be ideal candidates for its array of features.

Data You — and Your Patients — Can Use

Our current rate of data creation is approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes per day. (A quintillion has 18 zeroes; a billion has “only” 12 zeroes.)

All that data doesn’t do any good, though, if you cannot access it and put it to good use. That’s where the Lunar iDXA shines, with features such as:

Database access for 40 remote users
You can connect up to 40 remote computers with a common patient database, enabling multiple users to access and analyze vital patient data.

Tools for practice management
The included business reporting tools can help your team efficiently provide exemplary service. Readily view the existing patient population, as well as follow-up on the next site visit.

Automatic reports
The Lunar iDXA’s “Composer” feature provides many pre-generated report formats to make sharing information with patients easier. It also gives you the ability to create custom reports.

Customizable reference populations
The Lunar iDXA can create custom reference populations for comparison to your patients’ results.

Affordable Technology

In a world where weight loss products and programs of questionable efficacy, exercise equipment readymade to serve as glorified laundry racks, and unused gym membership account for tens of billions of dollars in consumer spending, an iDXA Lunar scan not subsidized by insurance is a remarkable value.

A scan costs between $49 and $250, depending on frequency, purpose, and other factors. It’s a bargain compared to the $800 annual cost of a gym membership. (It’s an even bigger bargain when you consider that gym owners only expect consistent use from approximately 18 percent of their members.)

The Lunar iDXA is also affordable from the practice’s perspective. There are insurance carrier hassles to worry about since patients pay directly for body composition scans. And with a population in need of more tools to improve their health, a practice is free to determine the ideal scan cadence per day and week. Revenue generated by the Lunar iDXA can readily cover its expense.

An A.P.T. Approach: 3 Essential Elements of Today’s Concierge Medicine Practice

The numbers are sobering.

In its most recent biennial physician survey, The Physicians Foundation discovered that:

  • 54% of physicians rated their morale as either “somewhat negative” or “very negative.”
  • 49% of physicians often or always experienced feelings of burn-out.
  • 49% of physicians would not recommend medicine as a career to their children.

Little wonder, then, that the same study found that 48% of physicians plan notable changes. When more than half of the physicians surveyed rate their morale that low, something’s got to give.

That explains, in part, the rising interest in concierge medicine – cited by that 48% as a possible alternative for them. Conveyed in its simplest terms, concierge medicine is a health care model in which patients pay a primary care physician a monthly or annual fee in exchange for more personal care.

Doctors like concierge medicine because it shifts them from a bottom-line-driven, “quantity over quality” model to one that prioritizes each patient. The same survey cited above revealed that a scant 14% of physicians felt that have the time they need to provide the highest standards of care to patients.

Here’s one way to determine if such a move is an apt one for your practice. We call it, well, A.P.T.: Adaptability + Patience + Technology.

ADAPTABILITY

Because concierge medicine is still relatively new to the medical services field, physicians entering it will need to be ready to adapt to an array of roles as those roles are required.

The role: Conductor
A primary care concierge medicine physician won’t perform all of the health care services her patients need. That means she’ll be required to take a more active role in orchestrating the involvement of specialists and others – conducting their efforts to arrive at the best possible course of prevention or treatment.

The role: Advocate/Educator
Unfair. Elitist. An ethical gray area. Opponents of a concierge medicine approach understand its appeal but express deep-set concerns about what it means for the future of medical care. Addressing such concerns to those who raise them – including other healthcare professionals and patients – will require an educator’s patience, a diplomat’s touch, and an advocate’s measured passion. (Advocating for patients falls under the role of “conductor,” which we discussed above.)

The role: Captain
Not every patient joins the doctor who shifts from a traditional primary care physician model to the concierge medicine model. Especially in challenging economic times, even the most stalwart of patients will walk away.

One study revealed that the median transition time to the concierge model was 12 months. Most physicians gave patients at least three months to find a new doctor. And many were very engaged with facilitating the transfer of care for those patients – underscoring the “conductor” role. That transitional period can be a trying time for even the most confident physician and her business advisors. Which is why strong captaining skills, required to successful sail such uncharted waters, is required.

PATIENCE

Even today, concierge medicine juggles a little bit of an identity crisis. “Boutique medicine” is largely out. “Retainer medicine” and “membership medicine” also pop out periodically. Even the most prominent non-profit champion of concierge medicine struggled. First, it was the Society for Innovative Medical Practice Design. Now, it’s the American Academy of Private Physicians.

It’s only natural, then, to anticipate additional change and to shore up the patience necessary to handle them. The mechanics of concierge medicine have changed a little since its introduction in the mid-1990s and will almost certainly continue to evolve.

One of the ways it has changed? The first recognized implementation of concierge medicine cost individuals $13,200 per year. Compare that to the Cleveland Clinic Florida’s $4,000 per year cost announced in 2018. Other programs can come in at far less – as little as $39 per month.

For specialty practices, the importance of patience rises. Here’s how Wayne Lipton, managing partner for Concierge Choice Physicians, LLC, described it. “Designing a concierge program that works in concert with the goals and characteristics of a specialty practice is like solving a puzzle: there are many parts and they must all fit together for success.”

Primary care, specialty care: irrespective of the background, the concierge medicine field will change. Sometimes, changes are prompted by market fluctuations. The Wall Street Journal wrote about one doctor who shifted the focus of his concierge medicine practice from “A-list” clients who paid as much as $30,000 per month to middle-class clients he charged $59 per month and $10 per visit. The lesser rate offered more streamlined services than its pricier cousin but maintained high doctor accessibility.

TECHNOLOGY

A leading reason why concierge medicine is becoming more affordable? Technology. Consider the current healthcare technology landscape:

  • Apple Watches, FitBits, and other devices designed to help users track their health and activity levels
  • The plethora of health apps for smartphones – a category that will only grow
  • The availability of real-time communication methods such as secure video conferencing, email, and texting to doctors seeking that greater connectivity
  • Remote services such as telepharmacy and telerehabilitation

And those are only the broadly accessible advancements. Today’s concierge medicine practices have even more powerful tools at their disposal.

One such tool is the GE Lunar iDXA Bone Densitometer, a research-grade whole body assessment machine that works across a broad range of patient sizes and conditions. Using a device such as GE’s DXA allows physicians to determine the precise locations of muscle, bone, and fat in a patient.

That last component is especially important. Fat closest to the vital organs, subcutaneous fat, and visceral fat, can obstruct vital organs and create serious problems. This means a DXA scan can detect indicators of conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. All told, the amount of patient data available from a seven-minute DXA scan can help guide doctors establish the foundation of a wellness plan for every patient.

Paired with the growing capabilities of wearable tech and communication platforms, today’s technological advances mean a great deal to tomorrow’s concierge medicine practice.

More NFL Teams are using iDXA technology

More NFL Teams are using iDXA technology

The technology – known as DXA or DEXA Scans – is recognized as the best method to measure your body fat percentage, metabolism and fitness.

Trainers use DXA to clearly see where a player carries fat, muscle and bone. The DXA machine is a bone densitometer that uses low-dose radiation to scan a player’s body composition. Bone densitometers have an optional software package that measures body composition. This knowledge is beneficial toprecisely monitor how an athlete is training and what adjustments should be made.

Complete Medical Services is the leading provider of bone density equipment and also the exclusive provider for the DexaFit organization – a body composition and body fat testing center with locations throughout the United States.

Recently, Nick Roach, a middle linebacker for the Oakland Raiders, said “DexaFit’s my first stop at the beginning of each offseason for my baseline fitness testing. The data and feedback from my reports are like a GPS for planning my workouts in the gym and on the field.”

Body Composition is the basis for a person’s overall health and wellness. Specifically, body composition testing determines how much of your body is fat and how much is lean mass – calculating the ratio of one’s fat to lean mass. DXA provides a very detailed analysis that identifies the percentages of body fat, lean mass, and bone mass, as it relates to total weight.

 

At the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, Oakland Raiders Head Coach Jack Del Rio spoke to the media,

“It’s a great time to be a Raider … I feel great about the entire staff. Having Joe Gomes and his staff come in has been a very important part of the process, what we have underway here, in terms of nutrition, in terms of the facilities and the weight room and what we’re doing with those guys, the routines, the things that we’re exposing them to and the different things we’re doing with the training and the conditioning, the body composition – all of those things. He has taken that to another level. I think all of our guys will benefit from that, so he has done a great job.”

http://www.raiders.com/news/2015-Draft/article-1/Del-Rio-It%E2%80%99s-a-great-time-to-be-a-Raider/7a29840b-9099-4d63-b80a-fc89afed42e7

Later Coach Del Rio added,

“We asked our guys to come in and eat right and train hard, and then I really trust [head strength and conditioning coach] Joe Gomes and his staff to help us establish healthy, productive weights for our guys … As you know, Khalil [Mack, a linebacker] doesn’t carry a lot of body fat. He’s added some lean mass and he’s put on good weight. We feel good about where he is.”

As muscular tissue takes up less space than fat tissue, our body composition, as well as our weight, will determine leanness. Body composition is the foundation for overall health and wellness analysis and improvement.

Current update on DXA Whole Body Scans for weight loss and health

Current update on DXA Whole Body Scans for weight loss and health

Complete Medical Services is the leading provider of bone density equipment.

Typically when thinking about DXA (‘dexa’) equipment, the first thought is simply a bone density scan that is synonymous with osteoporosis. While it is true that DXA is the best way to detect osteoporosis, it is also the case that DXA technology provides even more.

In fact, a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal  emphasized that DXA is the industry standard for measuring body composition.   The author of the article also highlighted how a full body scan procedure gives far more data than the traditional methods of looking at Body-Mass Index (or BMI).

“A DXA scan (pronounced dexa) is commonly used to measure bone density, but recently has been increasingly used to measure body composition … available at a growing number of spas, hospitals and doctor’s offices”

Body Composition is the foundation for a person’s overall health and wellness. Specifically, body composition testing determines how much of your body is fat and how much is lean mass – calculating the ratio of one’s fat to lean mass.

DXA will provide a very detailed analysis that will identify the percentages of body fat, lean mass, and bone mass, as it relates to total weight.  The report provided is extremely detailed, showing this breakdown of information per region of the body.

So who should use DXA for body composition analysis?  Everyone!  If you are the average person that is trying to maintain or improve fitness levels, or if you are overweight and want to track weight loss progress. Athletes in training who want to track small or large changes, increasing or decreasing lean mass, targeting each region of their body.

In addition, seniors should use DXA, to address their loss of lean mass, or more accurately sarcopenia.  Sarcopenia, defined as the loss of muscle tissue, is a natural part of the aging process.  A process which begins in a person’s 30’s, and will occur in those that are inactive or active. Those who are inactive can experience lean muscle loss on average of 3% to 5% every 10 years, and for seniors, the rate of muscle loss accelerates.  Loss of lean-muscle is accompanied by loss of strength.

In the past, there have been a number of common methods other than DXA for checking body composition. These have been available for some time, mostly  inaccurate, and provide very little data. DXA on the other hand is a very advanced technology, providing extremely detailed and precise full body measurements. Today, industry medical specialists point to DXA as the ‘Gold Standard’ for body composition analysis. 

The Wall Street Journal article showcased certain product models, the GE Lunar iDXA and GE Lunar Prodigyadding that the DXA technology scans for Visceral Fat as well.

 Both of GE’s machines, the Lunar iDXA and Lunar Prodigy … estimate how much visceral fat you have, a measure that can help predict risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease”

Visceral Fat is the fat accumulation between the organs, and a precursor to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.  Thus far, only a CT scanner could measure Visceral Fat.  DXA technology, on the other hand, provides an extremely precise measurement, in a short time frame, without the need to expose the patient to high radiation doses from a CT scanner. 

 

     New Prodigy P3-P4

            GE Lunar iDXA                                 GE Lunar Prodigy

DXA is being used by more and more hospitals, universities, professional sports teams, and office based physicians to provide precise and detailed body composition reports. These facilities are choosing DXA technology and equipment for both accuracy and functionality. 

“Among methods now available for measuring body composition, DXA “would rank among the top,” says Dympna Gallagher, director of the body composition laboratory at Columbia University Medical Center in New York.”
