Now Offering State-of-the-Art Bone Densitometry (Bone Mineral Density Screening, DEXA Scan) and Body Composition Analysis, Featuring GE’s Prodigy* Technology. TBS iNsight™—an advanced, imaging software for bone densitometers (DXA)—enhances the ability to predict osteoporotic fracture risk. This enhanced assessment is now available for select scans at Bergen Imaging Center.
Bone Mineral Densitometry / DEXA Scan
Bone Mineral Densitometry, more commonly referred to as bone density screening, measures bone mass or bone density. It assesses the amount of calcium present in the bone. It is often used to determine if a patient has osteoporosis, and to what degree. It also estimates a patient’s risk of fractures. If diagnosed with osteoporosis, your doctor will determine which treatment options are available and best suited for you.

Comprehensive DXA Body Composition Analysis
CoreScan, GE’s breakthrough gold standard technology, uses DXA body composition analysis to measure fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass of each segment of the body. This technology quantifies patients’ visceral fat to help in the management of cardiometabolic diseases associated with excess visceral fat – including type 2 diabetes. This will help show the benefits of improving diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
Bergen Imaging Center is one of the first freestanding women’s imaging centers in Bergen County, New Jersey, to install GE Healthcare’s Prodigy*.
The Prodigy* provides a comprehensive body composition analysis, including bone mineral density (BMD) and lean and fat tissue mass. We are confident that this innovative technology will help patients live longer, healthier lives.
