The core elements of this program focus on performing quality DXA scans, dissecting the data and applying this knowledge to a technologist’s role in patient care. This course, which focuses on quality DXA, is innovative, interactive and informative. The course emphasizes technical excellence in the performance, analysis and troubleshooting of bone densitometry scans. The course will provide standard practices and applications to raise the quality of DXA scan procedures and its impact on patient care. This is achieved by enhancing awareness of the technical expertise involved in performing bone densitometry and applying protocols to address the everyday challenges. The course focuses on the considerable impact that a technologist plays in the delivery of quality DXA, and how that influences patient management.
