Vertebral Fracture Recognition

This advanced densitometry course focuses on vertebral fracture imaging in order to advance the diagnosis and treatment of patients at risk of osteoporotic fractures.  The importance of vertebral fractures in the clinical management of osteoporosis will be covered, including recognition on lateral spine images of a normal spine, vertebral fractures and other findings that may be confused with vertebral fractures.  Fracture recognition, analysis and best-practice patient positioning will be detailed in order to ensure ideal image acquisition, interpretation and reporting.

Target Audience

The content is designed for healthcare providers responsible for reading and interpreting DXA scans, including specialists and generalists working in family medicine, general and internal medicine, rheumatology, endocrinology, obstetrics/gynecology, radiology, nuclear medicine, physical and occupational therapy, and research, as well as technologists.

Overall Course Objectives

As a result of this course, learners will be better prepared to:

  • Summarize best-practice methods utilized to recognize vertebral fractures on lateral spine images.
  • Describe non-fracture abnormalities that may appear on a spine image.
  • Identify characteristics of high quality densitometric lateral spine images.
  • Identify the appropriate complementary technologies to complete vertebral fracture assessment.
  • Cite indications for VFA as stated in the 2015 ISCD Official Positions.
