In 1998 he became the Director of the Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. In this capacity he runs bone densitometry, sees patients in consultation for osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease, and does research on optimizing performance and reporting of bone densitometry.
