Heel ultrasound

Is the procedure Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) which measures bone density in the heel bone, that I used to get in the US, available in EC?

"Instead of X-ray radiation, QUS sends high-frequency sound waves through your heel while you rest your bare foot on the instrument. This type of densitometer measures the reflection of sound waves. Denser bone reflects sound waves back to the device sooner," according to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
