DXA Body Composition Analysis Course

This course focuses on increasing the knowledge and competence of clinicians and other healthcare professionals to help them 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.

Prerequisite videos are included in the registration fees. Access to that content will be made available to registrants through the ISCD online education website 30 days prior to the course.

Target Audience

The content is designed for healthcare providers responsible for reading and interpreting DXA scans, including specialists and generalists working in family medicine, general and internal medicine, rheumatology, endocrinology, obstetrics/gynecology, radiology, physical and occupational therapy, and research, as well as technologists.


Overall Course Objectives

After attending the course, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Identify proper DXA technology for body composition analysis of fat, lean muscle and bone mass.
  • List other methods of body composition analysis used in the clinical setting. 
  • Differentiate reference values and indices. 
  • Identify limitations of reference values and indices. 
  • Summarize scan acquisition for adult and pediatric patients.
