Benefits

The latest enCORE software has been enhanced for:enCORE on-screen mirror image.

CLINICAL ASSESSMENT

Weight and body mass index do not provide a complete picture of metabolic health. enCORE’s body composition analysis goes beyond the obvious for a highly detailed, carefully measured representation of the condition of the body. By distinguishing among fat mass, lean mass, and bone, the application gives you in-depth information you need to help make sound therapeutic decisions. enCORE is loaded with new features to help with the analysis.

PRODUCTIVITY

Want to improve your day-to-day workflow efficiency? enCORE’s new features help minimize human error, automate workflows, and improve data exchange over previous versions. Software also includes recent Windows** 7 performance and security enhancements.

Technology

Here are just a few of the features available in enCORE that enhance clinical assessments and help improve productivity:

CLINICAL ASSESSMENT

  • Color coded images give you the tools to help your patients understand their body composition and visualize changes over time.
  • Color mapping images1 give you the tools to help your patients understand where high areas of fat are located and visualize changes over time.
  • MirrorImage automatically estimates results for regions of interest outside the scan window based on what has been scanned. It allows you to provide body composition and BMD results for very large patients.
  • Expanded reference data includes the 1999-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey — which allows you to make comparisons of adult and pediatric body composition results. NHANES 1999-2004 data includes total body DXA scans on 22,000 Americans from 8 to over 85; male and female; white, black, and Mexican-American.
  • Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) serves as a baseline for determining the minimum nutritional needs of a patient.
  • Relative Skeletal Mass Index (RSMI) assesses the lean/fat distribution in the arms and legs.
  • Trending of key data in easy-to-read reports provide a clear summary of client progress and can help motivate greater compliance.

PRODUCTIVITY 

  • Windows** 7 and Windows XP-compatible: enCORE now supports both the Windows 7 Professional 32-bit operating system and the Windows XP Professional 32-bit operating system.
  • Database Export: Expanded to include more data fields than previous versions, this feature exports patient, exam, and result information to tab-delimited text files for use in programs such as Microsoft** Excel.
  • Dose tracking: Decreasing patient exposure to radiation dose is an important area of focus for radiology departments. Our latest enCORE software improves dose tracking capabilities for DXA exams versus previous versions. Skin entrance dose is available on reports with either Practice Management Tools or Composer. Additional information, including total skin entrance dose for the exam, may be exported via DICOM** MPPS to hospital information systems capable of accepting it as well as dose reporting systems such as GE Healthcare’s DoseWatch*.
