Osteometer MediTech has received US FDA 510(k) clearance to market its office-based bone densitometer for diagnosing osteoporosis. The DexaCare G4 is a "turn-key" table-top device that enables healthcare professionals to analyse the bone mineral density of the patient in their own setting without having to refer them to a larger clinic or hospital, says the Hawthorne, California firm, a subsidiary of OSI Systems. Shipments for the product are scheduled to begin in August 2002.
