About the Advanced DXA Courses

Vertebral Fracture Recognition Course
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.
Pediatric Bone Densitometry Course
The Pediatric Bone Densitometry Course provides the most current research and best-practice techniques for obtaining and interpreting bone mineral density (BMD) measurements in children and adolescents. This educational program is designed to improve learner competence in the area of pediatric densitometry. Learners will have the opportunity to take the knowledge gained from this educational program and properly and consistently apply it into his/her professional practice.
DXA Body Composition Analysis Course
This live course focuses on the increase of knowledge and competence of clinicians and other healthcare professionals in order to successfully use DXA body composition analysis in the management of obesity, geriatric sarcopenia and other low muscle mass states, general health and pediatric skeletal disease. The inclusion of case studies will reinforce the knowledge gained and allow for application in the diagnosis, treatment and therapies of patients presenting with low bone mineral density.
