2023 ISCD Official Positions (Adult)

We are pleased to share that our updated ISCD 2023 Adult Official Positions are now published on our website and available for viewing. As you may know, these updated position statements were born from our Position Development Conference (PDC). The PDC advances the field of skeletal assessment by developing Position Statements on important topics in skeletal assessment, through a rigorous, validated method. The PDC is a 12-15-month long process that generates practical advice for clinicians and researchers in the field of musculoskeletal assessment: the ISCD Official Positions.

The 2023 ISCD Position Development Conference (PDC) public session was held March 28, 2023, at the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel. Those who attended were able to voice their opinion on proposed positions and substantiating scientific data.

As a reminder, topics for the 2023 PDC included Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) Application and ReportingDXA Monitoring, and DXA Reporting, as approved by the ISCD Board in March 2022 after a process of topic solicitation from the ISCD membership, Steering Committee review, Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) assessment, grading and ranking, and Executive Committee review and recommendation to the Board.

We would like to thank our PDC Steering Committee Chair, Christopher Shuhart, MD, MHA, CCD for his tremendous leadership through this process. Thank you to our Steering Committee Members Ranjodh Gill, MD, FACP, CCD and Angela Man-Wei Cheung, MD, PhD, FRCPC, CCD as well as all of the members of our Task Forces and Expert Panel. We appreciate your time, expertise and commitment to the scientific method.

All ISCD Official Positions are for worldwide application except where otherwise noted.
