September 2022 - Pediatric Bone Densitometry

  • Registration Closed

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/consistently apply it to their professional practices.

It is recommended, but not required, that registrants attend the Osteoporosis Essentials/Quality Bone Densitometry Course (Clinician or Technologist) prior to attending the Pediatric Bone Densitometry course.

Target Audience

The content is designed for healthcare providers with an interest in skeletal health assessment, including specialists, generalists and technologists working in family medicine, general and internal medicine, endocrinology, rheumatology, obstetrics/gynecology, radiology, pediatrics, physical and occupational therapy, nuclear medicine and research.


Overall Course Objectives

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

  • Identify the most appropriate and reproducible sites for densitometry in children and adolescents.
  • Outline the corrections in DXA measurements that should be made when acquiring assessments in children and adolescents. 
  • Describe the uses of measurement tools for acquiring bone densitometry assessments, including DXA, as well as those other than DXA. 
  • Summarize the elements that should be included in a DXA report for a child or adolescent. 
  • Recognize issues that arise in children with chronic disease(s) that many times arise in the skeletal assessment.

Method of Participation

This activity will be offered through zoom, allowing the learner to watch and ask questions in a live format on September 24, 2022. Learners will be asked to complete a post-course survey to indicate what they will change in their practice as a result of this activity.

Catherine M. Gordon, MD, MS, CCD

Professor and Senior Faculty

USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center

I am a pediatrician with training in both adolescent medicine and pediatric endocrinology and have a longtime interest in pediatric and adolescent bone health. I am a tenured Professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and on the senior faculty at the USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center. I previously founded and directed the Bone Health Program at Boston Children’s Hospital. I helped to develop the ISCD Pediatric Bone Density Course and have enjoyed lecturing within it. I also served on the
ISCD Board of Directors, as the Society’s Education Chair, as Task Force Co-Chair for the ISCD Pediatric Position Development Conference. Through moderating sessions at national meetings, visiting professorships, and work on national committees, I have provided leadership in the advancement and dissemination of knowledge on adolescent bone health, a relatively new field for pediatricians. For the past over two decades, I have also led an independently funded adolescent health research group with support from the NIH, Department of Defense, and private foundations. I am interested in modifiable factors during adolescence that influence bone density and other aspects of health during the adult years. Disease models we have studied include anorexia nervosa, primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), endometriosis, and inflammatory bowel disease, among others.
