ISCD is excited to offer this 4 hr. webinar in partnership with the Medical Technology Management Institute (MTMI).
This course is an advanced densitometry course that provides an overview on obtaining and interpreting bone mineral density (BMD) measurements in children and adolescents. The definition of osteoporosis in pediatric patients, diagnosis and management of those patients and appropriate reporting of pediatric bone density results will be covered, as well as reviews of case studies. A review of peripheral quantitative tomography (pQCT) and other modalities to evaluate the peripheral skeleton will also be included.
The learner will be able to identify, recall and explain the proper bone mineral density assessment in children and adolescents, while also applying this knowledge to quality measurement tools and techniques, patient diagnosis, treatment and therapies.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
-Identify children who are at risk for developing early bone loss and osteoporosis in accordance with the guidelines from the Pediatric Position Development Conference.
-Identify issues that arise in the assessment of skeletal health in children with chronic disease(s).
-Recall the recommendations from the Pediatric Position Development Conference for reporting densitometry results in pediatric patients.
-Explain the uses of measurement tools for acquiring bone densitometry assessments other than DXA.
