How to Position Patients to a Standard that Reduces Technologists Variability in Hip Scans (On Demand)
Activity approved for 1.00 ASRT Category A Credits
Activity approved for up to 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Activity Expires September 1, 2024
This activity will address strategies for technologists upon how to deal with challenging patient anatomy, particularly in situations where automated analysis fails and suboptimal positioning on DXA scans.
1. Identify how to properly assess patients on DXA with anatomy variances.
2. Determine best practices for DXA evaluation.
3. Distinguish between normal and abnormal skeletal differences and how they can best be analyzed.
Clinicians and Technologists are required to answer a set of online test questions following the review of the video and will have up to three attempts to answer questions correctly before losing credit for the activity. Once the activity test has been passed (75% or higher), you will be asked to evaluate the activity online and then be allowed to claim credit and print certificates.
