Boneprox makes a computerized digital image analysis which provides a standardized and operator-independent bone quality analysis. The software uses intraoral X-rays from a defined region of the lower jaws (mandible) premolar region to measure trabecular density and indicate the risk of having osteoporosis.
The software uses digital image algorithms in combination with artificial intelligence to automatically place the region of interest in the optimal area and analyze the trabecular structure of the selected region.
Boneprox’s vision is to detect the risk of osteoporosis before the first fracture occurs. Boneprox Cut-off points for risk are thus based on T-score <- 1 (osteopenia).
< 6,3 healthy bone = negative result (n)
> 6,3 for sparse bone = positive result (p)
The dentist does not provide a diagnosis or treatment proposal but only makes a statement based on a x-ray image and a few anamnestic questions and reports this result and asks the patient to contact his GP or send the patient to the healthcare. Several dental clinics now open up to give their patients this opportunity.
The service may under no circumstances be used instead of contact, examination or treatment by a doctor. Our analysis is, despite a high degree of accuracy, a recommendation tool, therefore gives no diagnosis. Positive analysis results may be the basis for further investigation.
