  • This presentation aims to identify the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging and introduce basic concepts and trends in AI for patient and imaging considerations in osteoporosis and fracture prevention to hopefully improve standardization and clinical effectiveness in clinical densitometry. Originally offered live as a live session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • First, introduce the use of low dose CT + QCT protocol for volumetric bone mineral density measurement and the application in opportunistic screening of osteoporosis, then present the major findings of the China Biobank QCT BMD results and discuss the ramification of our study to the diagnosis and screening of osteoporosis in China and around the world. Originally offered live as a live session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • This lecture will discuss interesting and challenging DXA scans. Included in the presentation are problems with DXA scan analysis and challenging cases including how objects in the soft tissue affect analysis and how to do an analysis with spinal hardware present. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • Rheumatic diseases have the greatest impact on the musculoskeletal system and osteoporosis is a common and significant co-morbidity. In this talk I will briefly review skeletal manifestations of rheumatic diseases, with a special emphasis on osteoporosis and its prevention and management in patients with rheumatic diseases. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • This didactic lecture will walk through steps to develop a research project and design novel approaches to DXA acquisition. This will include discussion regarding available technology and evaluation of various options to evaluate skeletal status.. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • Hundreds of genes have been identified in genome wide association studies of bone traits, but their total contribution to variation of these traits is small. This session will address the reasons why this is so. It will also inform listeners about the differences between human and model organism genetics and illustrate how genetic effects are measured. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • Patients, doctors, and government officials routinely underestimate the impact of musculoskeletal (MSK) disease. Proper framing of the true burden of disease may improve awareness and management. A MSK failure scale is proposed. Its potential benefits, the work needed to establish it, and potential barriers to implementation are summarized. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • Abdominal aortic calcification or “AAC” is a stable marker of CVD that can be semi-quantified using images for vertebral fracture assessment. This session provides an overview of the methodology for scoring, pitfalls and tips for readers, as well as discussing the association between AAC with CVD and fractures and the potential for patient management. Originally offered live as an On Demand session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.

  • This interactive case-based session will illustrate how trabecular bone score (TBS) measurement can be applied to improve osteoporosis care in clinical practice. Originally offered live as a Meet the Professor session at the 2021 Virtual Annual meeting.
