Revolutionizing Bone Health: REMS Diagnostics Coming to OsteoStrong

Precision Bone Imaging

Did you know that nearly one in two women over the age of 50 will suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime? Even more alarming, the one-year mortality rate for women who suffer a hip or femur fracture can be as high as 20 percent, similar to breast cancer. Despite these statistics, many women and men are unaware of their bone density status, as osteoporosis and osteopenia usually present no symptoms.
Traditional methods of assessing bone health have often been limited in both accuracy and convenience. However, a groundbreaking technology is now set to revolutionize bone health diagnostics—Radiofrequency Echographic Multi-Spectrometry (REMS).
What is REMS Technology?
REMS technology is a state-of-the-art, noninvasive tool that provides a comprehensive analysis of bone health. Unlike traditional DXA scans, which use X-rays, REMS assesses bone density with ultrasound waves. This method is safer as it does not expose patients to ionizing radiation, making it suitable for anyone 21 and older. For the first time, this technology allows for the screening of younger adults, the prevention of osteoporosis in this population, and the frequent assessment of progress during treatment. REMS is FDA-approved and offers more precise measurements of bone mineral density (BMD) and T-scores, along with a quantitative assessment of bone quality.
Benefits of REMS Technology
1.     Comprehensive Analysis: REMS provides a fragility score and a detailed five-year fracture risk assessment. The fragility score is a crucial indicator of bone quality and microarchitecture, offering a better prediction of future fractures than BMD alone. 
2.     Accuracy and Precision: REMS technology offers highly accurate and reproducible measurements. It eliminates common DXA concerns related to machine or operator variation and issues caused by artifacts from specific patient conditions or improper positioning.
3.     Radiation-Free: One of the significant advantages of REMS is that it is entirely radiation-free, making it a safer option for frequent monitoring.
4.     Comfort and Convenience: The REMS scan is quick, painless and does not require any special preparation. With REMS, you can easily get an appointment without the long wait times often associated with DXA scans, and the instant report is interpreted for you.
