Bone densitometry firm Lunar has received Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for Lateral Vertebral Assessment, an optional application package for its Prodigy bone densitometer. LVA provides a dual-energy image of the lateral spine, allowing physicians to visually assess the presence of vertebral deformations, according to the Madison, WI-based firm. Lunar believes that the application offers the benefit of combining bone mineral density determination and visual fracture assessment in one scan.
