  • The radiological examination on new bone formation and material biodegradation in rabbits was performed by an X-ray imaging system (XPERT; KUBTEC, USA) under 50 KV and 100 μA. The general X-ray films were taken both frontally and laterally by the X-ray system.

KUBTEC® DIGIMUS® software allows our high-resolution cabinet X-ray platforms to measure BMD and Body Composition using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA, DEXA) and single-energy X-ray absorptiometry (SXA, SEXA) technologies.

KUBTEC Cabinet X-ray Systems with DIGIMUS software automatically calculate Bone Mineral Density (BMD), Bone Mineral Content (BMC) and the percentage of lean and fat tissue for both whole body and area of focus.

DIGIMUS is fully automatic, simple to use, and available on KUBTEC PARAMETER® and XPERT® Platforms.
