Lunar Radiation was founded in 1981 by Dr. Richard Mazess, a University of Wisconsin research scientist.  The group designed and manufactured bone densitometry devices using both radiation sources and X-Rays.  In the late 1980's they designed an ultrasonic system dubbed the Achilles.  In 1996, Merck received FDA approval for their osteoporosis drug, Fosomax.  With the introduction of the drug, Lunar's business soared.  With an effective treatment available, there was a much greater reason to measure bone quality.  The company was purchased by General Electric Medical Systems in 2000 and incorporated into their Ultrasound modality.  GE Lunar employs about 300 people.
