My name is Nitin Moholkar and I am a post doc at Kessler Research. We are trying to import a DXA scan from a Lunar Prodigy Advanced DXA
scanner into Matlab. The software package that came with the scanner is called enCORE, if that helps. If anybody has any information
regarding this, I would appreciate any help you can give. I have checked the archives, and a number of online sources, and have been unable
to find anything useful. The file does not appear to be DICOM formatted, as DICOM
readers that I tried were unable to read the file. So ideally I would like either

1. A matlab m-file that can read the image from a DXA scan file outputted using the Lunar Prodigy Advanced
or
2. Information regarding the file structure of the DXA scan file outputted using the Lunar Prodigy Advanced so that I could write a matlab m-file
to read it.

Thank you for any help,
