Hartford, CT – Quality Bone Densitometry For Clinicians

June 4 - June 5



Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley Airport, One Bradley International Airport
Hartford, CT 06096 United States

Quality Bone Densitometry: Performance, Interpretation, and Clinical Application for Clinicians

An Osteoporosis Essentials Course of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry & International Osteoporosis Foundation

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.

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.
