The DIGIMUS® System is a high-resolution X-ray imaging system with the ability to measure BMD and Body Composition in Rodents and other small animals. BMD can be obtained using either DXA, or in cases where radiation exposure is a concern (such as longitudinal studies) by SEXA.
A digital detector that provides a field of view of 5 inches X 6 inches (12cm x l5cm)
Global and Region of Interest BMD and Body Compostion by DXA
Longitudinal BMD studies with reduced radiation using proprietary SXA method.
Small focal spot X-ray source and adjustable sample positioning
5X geometric magnification increasing visibility and detail of the smallest features
Ports to introduce anesthesia and any other monitoring devices, for in vivo imaging needs
Optional high-resolution optical camera inside the illuminated stainless steel enclosure for observation of animal and documentation of sample.
