Continuing Education Workshops


Our workshops allow technologists to deepen their understanding of bone densitometry. Our seminars cover the history of the technology as well as current clinical requirements in Canada.  We cover all the principles of bone densitometry: positioning, acquisition and analysis of all exam types along with a focus on the principles of precision and it's relevance to follow-up bone mineral density and determinations of significant change.

Database Migration


Most often our bone densitometer systems far outlast the lifespan of the computers that run the system.  When changing over to a new PC, our staff is available to help minimize downtime, recover data and ensure a complete database migration to a new workstation.

General Service Inquiries


Many times service events can be easily remedied with simple solutions within the system software.  As such, we suggest all our clients contact us toll free for all service and support requests.

Precision Testing


In accordance with most accreditation programs and provincial health authority policies, Aymes Medical strongly recommends that DXA BMD technologists complete a precision study.  This is of paramount importance for a reporting physician to determine the least significant change when reporting follow-up exams.  Contact us for support and we can help determine your facility specific precision error.

Shewhart Chart


Though GE Lunar DXA systems have a daily quality assurance phantom with 6 points of calibration, most accreditation programs and provincial health authorities require facilities to conduct Shewhart testing on each clinical day of testing. Contact us for all inquiries and support.
