Vertebral Fracture Recognition Course (livestream via Zoom)

March 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EST


Vertebral Fracture Recognition Course

This advanced densitometry course focuses on how vertebral fracture imaging advances the diagnosis and treatment of patients at risk of osteoporotic fractures. It emphasizes the importance of vertebral fractures in the clinical management of osteoporosis, including recognition on lateral spine images of a normal spine, vertebral fractures and other findings that may be confused with vertebral fractures.  Fracture recognition, analysis and best-practice patient positioning are detailed to ensure ideal image acquisition, interpretation and reporting.
