syngo Osteo CT

Clinical Applications
The software package is used as a screening tool for osteoporosis detection and also for follow-up to see the impact of treatment.


It enables the quantitative determination of bone mineral content of the lumbar spine in mg/ml of calcium hydroxyapatite for the diagnosis and follow-up of osteoporosis with CT. The patient is scanned together with the water- and bone-equivalent reference phantom.


Capabilities include:

  • Semi-automatic contour tracing for the trabecular and cortical bone regions in the vertebra
  • Semi-automatic determination of the regions of interest for the reference phantom
  • Calculation of bone mineral content in mg/ml of calcium hydroxyapatite
  • Graphics presentation of measurement results as compared to reference data.
