Factors Influencing DEXA Pricing

When shopping for a DEXA scanner, it's important to consider several factors that can affect pricing:

  • Current DEXA Supply on the Secondary Market: Availability can influence prices, so it's worth checking multiple sources.
  • Operating System: Systems running Windows 7 are generally more affordable, while those with Windows 10 might come at a premium.
  • Software Revision Level: Newer software versions often provide better functionality and might increase the cost.
  • Software Features: Units with more advanced software features will be priced higher.

Entry-level and intermediate-level units usually run Windows 7 and perform general osteoporosis testing.

These are ideal for standard diagnostic needs and provide reliable results.

On the other hand, premium-level units, which can run on either Windows 7 or Windows 10, are equipped to handle more advanced studies, including body composition, visceral fat, and atypical fracture assessments.

These advanced features can significantly enhance the diagnostic capabilities of your practice.

Making Your Purchase

When you're ready to buy, consider reaching out to suppliers specializing in refurbished medical imaging equipment.

They can provide detailed quotes and help you find a DEXA scanner that meets your specific needs and budget.

Remember, investing in a refurbished unit can save you money while still providing high-quality diagnostic capabilities.
