This article was originally published in Clinica
US sales of Norland Medical Systems' OsteoAnalyser SXA3000 bone densitometer are due to begin in October. Designed for measuring bone mineral density in the primary care practitioner's office, the system is priced at $19,900. The company has sold over 750 pDEXA desktop densitometers since US introduction last year (see Clinica No 676, p 18). Norland has withdrawn its planned stock offering in view of the general stock market decline and the fall in its share price, which closed at $16 on August 6th.
