Accurate, reproducible, and practical quantification of visceral adipose tissue fat (VAT)

To effectively assess obesity and metabolic diseases that affect millions of people, you need credible measurements of visceral fat — reproducible results from a validated method. Designed to do just that, CoreScan™ gives you a fast and easy way to accurately quantify visceral fat.

The CoreScan™ is an application to quantify visceral fat by using low-dosage, dual energy absorptiometry (DXA) technology. It can help you predict patient disease risk, assess and manage treatment approaches, and add important contributions to the body of published research — all at a lower dose than conventional visceral fat measurement techniques.

The CoreScan application offers you the following benefits:

The CoreScan™ application features an exclusive algorithm that uses data from the total body measurement of the patient using a DXA scan.

CoreScan™ has been validated in clinical trials with CT technology. CoreScan™ has proven to have a high degree of correlation with CT technology across genders and wide range of BMI’s.1 – making it a convenient and accessible technology option for quantification of visceral fat.

Successful research and treatment begins with credible data: reproducible results from a validated method. CoreScan™ software sets a standard for visceral fat quantification. It can help you predict cardio-metabolic risk, assess treatment approaches, and add important contributions to the body of published research.

The CoreScan™ application puts accurate visceral fat quantification within reach — opening new possibilities for clinicians and researchers. It provides a fast and easy method, whether assessing individual patients or performing large clinical studies — and at a lower dose of radiation than conventional CT and MR technology.
