Course Description

OSTEOPOROSIS: Essentials of Densitometry, Diagnosis and Management An international course of the ISCD and IOF – Formerly the ISCD Bone Densitometry Course

The core elements of this program provide a set of standard practices and information to raise the level of awareness and education in bone densitometry and osteoporosis. The course is offered in two parts. The first day is for those engaged specifically in the performance and interpretation of DXA scans. It also is offered in combination with a subsequent Day 2 which focusses on the prevention, treatment and management of osteoporosis. Individuals may register for only Day 1 or for Day 1 and Day 2.

Target Audience

The course is most appropriate for those involved in the performance and interpretation of DXA scans. It is open to MDs, PhDs, DOs, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants in good standing with licensing organization. Fellows and Residents should be in good standing with Fellow/Residency program. Technologists may attend if they have previously taken the ISCD Bone Densitometry Course for Technologists and gaining information about interpreting DXA scans would assist them with their job responsibilities.

Objectives

After attending the course, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Explain the value of bone densitometry for diagnosis of osteoporosis, fracture risk estimation and monitoring
  • Describe principles for interpreting central DXA scans
  • Explain fracture risk assessment combining BMD with clinical risk factors (WHO fracture risk model)
  • Evaluate non-central DXA technologies for predicting fracture risk
  • Recognize errors in DXA reporting
