This is going to be an advanced 2 days course which serves to educate concerned healthcare providers about Osteoporosis and bone densitometry. This will hopefully help to apply international standard practices in Osteoporosis diagnosis and management and to assure quality performance in performing and interpreting bone densitometry studies. The first day delivers the standard knowledge in Osteoporosis, performing and interpreting Quality DXA scans while day 2 focuses on the clinical assessment, prevention, treatment and management of osteoporosis and the essential role that high-quality DXA plays in diagnosis, treatment initiation and monitoring of osteoporotic patients.
Upon completion of the course delegates are eligible to set an exam at accredited examination centers to be certified by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry as DXA technician or scans interpreter/reporter.
We are looking forward to welcoming your participation in this rich and enjoyable educational experience to enhance your knowledge in Osteoporosis and provide you with an excellent forum for learning and networking.
