Discover - the new software


platform that puts everything at
your fingertips

is Medilink’s new software interface


dedicated to optimizing the acquisition,
processing, storing and recalling of your data.

While capable of the most sophisticated


functions, ’s ingenuity lies in its
simplicity – it is remarkably user-friendly,
making all essential information accessible
with the simple click of a button.

The mobile version

Introducing the new

Medilink, the company which brought you the revolutionary technology


Digital Flash Beam, is pleased to welcome you to the new Osteocore
Station! The Osteocore Station was designed to be a cost-effective DXA
solution for practitioners seeking the very best system in terms of
accuracy and precision. The Osteocore Station calculates bone density
for the three relevant sites implicated in the detection of osteoporosis: hip
(femoral neck, trochanter, intertrochanter), spine and forearm.

Available in two different models, the stationary or the mobile model, the
Osteocore Station combines technology, software and design to optimize
patient workflow.

Progress through Innovation


’s main advantages include:

Exam mode

Morphometric tools
provides access to morphometric
information such as length, area and angle
measurements for any part of the bone. These
Twin-Hip measurements yield quantative bone information,
Precise comparative information can be and help to better qualify the bone status.
obtained for BMD measures in both hips in
order to have the most complete information
for diagnosis. Combi-scan
Two exams (hip and spine) can be performed in
one single operation thus improving workflow
and comfort for both patients and users.

The Osteocore Station’s exam mode is fully


automated, from calibration to data processing.
The ROI (region of interest) is automatically
selected in order to minimize operator
involvement and to improve the accuracy and
reproducibility of results.

Consultation mode

Multi-report function

Data management BMD measures and image results are


combined on a concise, single sheet format in

criteria search modes and multi-user diagnostic information. The doctor has the
