The Sectra OneScreen online service consists of taking a digital radiograph of the hand immediately after performing a mammogram, a process that takes less than 30 seconds. The image is transmitted using an Internet connection to a central facility, where an analysis of bone density is performed using Sectra's digital x-ray radiogrammetry technology.

The analysis enables the early identification of osteoporosis using bone-density measurements, and identifies women at risk for whom a bone densitometry examination is recommended, according to the vendor.
