DXA Body Composition Analysis Course (livestream via Zoom)
November 4 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT
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.
Course Faculty: Dr. Adam Kuchnia and Dr. John A. Shepherd, PhD, CCD
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.
