AutoBMD™ is the first FDA-Approved, AI-Powered, Cloud-Based, Opportunistic Bone Mineral Density (BMD) Measurement Test that works on any CT scan.


It enables your doctor to take advantage of CT scans ordered for other purposes and measure your bone density.

AutoBMD™ enables your imaging center to take advantage of CT scans ordered for other purposes, and create opportunistic revenue.



AutoBMD takes advantage
of existing CT scans

AutoBMD reports Z-score and T-score similar to DEXA scans, and detects osteopenia and osteoporosis for prevention of future bone fractures.

AutoBMd uses QCT but does not require a new scan. It is superior to DEXA and regular scans and works on all CT scans (both existing and new scans).  AutoBMD can be run on:

  • Coronary Artery Calcium Scans

  • Lung Cancer Screening Scans

  • Thoracic & Abdominal scans

Benefits of AutoBMD

Opportunistic Revenue Generator

AutoBMD™ enables your imaging center to add BMD report to CT scans ordered for other purposes with consent from patients and referring physicians.

AutoBMD™ is reimbursed under CPT77078 using contiguous billing modifier 59/XP

No Capital Investment Needed

Any diagnostic imaging center from anywhere in the world can sign up and start adding AutoBMD™ report to any CT scans of the chest and abdomen.

No training or learning curve is needed, and no calibration phantom

No hardware or CapEx is required, your practice can start generating revenue immediately

Your patients can access the report from AutoBMD's web portal and mobile app

Osteoporosis screening is covered under USPSTF and is repeated every 5 years, therefore increasing patient engagement

Meet the Growing Need


Over 30M women over 65 should have a bone density scan every other year, but less than 7% are getting one.


Osteoporisis is increasingly being recognized as public health concern in the aging population.

How AutoBMD Works

This report is created using HeartLung's FDA approved and cloud-based AutoBMD™ that helps doctors quickly identify patients who are having accelerated bone loss and are at risk of cracks, compressions, or fractures in their skeletal body, but are unaware of their serious condition.

This AI-powered tool automatically extracts valuable information about bone health from any CT scan of a patient's chest or abdomen, done for any reason. Therefore, it saves patients extra radiation and extra screening cost.



Automatically detect the vertebral column



Disk segmentation and labeling vertebral bones



Detecting the trabecular component of the vertebral bones as the region of interest



Calculating BMD using Housfield Units with built-in calibration factor



Reporting T-Score and Z-Score, along with axial, coronal, and sagittal views of the ROI

An In-Depth Look


Z-score is your bone density compared to a healthy person of the same age and gender. This represents how far off your score is (measured in the number of standard deviations) from the average score of healthy people of similar age.

Z-scores of -2.0 or lower are classified as low BMD for chronological age and those above -2.0 classified as within the expected range.



T-score is your bone density compared with what is normally expected in a healthy young adult of your sex. People with normal bone density have a T-score between +1 and -1.


Fracture Report

A compression fracture is a type of break in your spinal bones when they become weak and gradually collapse, making them shorter in height. This collapse can also cause pieces of bone to press on the spinal cord and nerves, causing pain and decreasing the amount of blood and ocygen that gets to the spinal cord.

Fractures are related to the anterior (ANT), middle (MID) and posterior (POS) height.

“Providing high-risk people a DEXA equivalent, FDA-approved BMD report with no additional radiation is an obvious benefit."
