Course Description

The core elements of this course serve to educate healthcare providers about bone densitometry and osteoporosis and to apply standard practices to assure quality performance and interpretation of bone densitometry studies. The course is offered in two parts. The first day sets the standard to perform Quality DXA interpretation. Day 2 focuses on the clinical assessment, prevention, treatment and management of osteoporosis and the essential role that high-quality DXA plays in treatment initiation decisions and monitoring of osteoporotic patients. Individuals may register for either part of the course separately or as a combined program.


Target Audience

The course is most appropriate for those involved in the performance and interpretation of DXA scans and those managing patients with osteoporosis. It is open to MDs, PhDs, DOs, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants. Technologists may attend if they have previously taken the ISCD/IOF Osteoporosis Essentials for Technologists Course.


Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe appropriate clinical evaluation of patients at risk for fragility fracture.
  • Summarize the value and importance of quality bone densitometry for the diagnosis of osteoporosis, assessment of fracture risk, and monitoring of BMD. 
  • Recognize errors in DXA analysis and reporting. 
  • Explain new and emerging guidelines that provide evidence-based information regarding skeletal health. 
  • Describe the use of current and new pharmacologic therapies for the management and treatment of osteoporosis, including adverse effects.

Method of Participation

This activity will be offered live streamed via Zoom, allowing the learner to watch and ask questions in a live format on September 21 & 22, 2024. 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.
