Join AHEC faculty Lesa Mohr, RT(R)(QM)(BD) for the video series of Bone Densitometry Principles and Procedures. Bone densitometry has proven to be a key tool in the diagnosis and treatment outcomes for patients with osteoporosis, and an effective means to promote prevention in others. There are an estimated 44 million Americans affected by osteoporosis each year. The inclusion of bone densitometry as a reimbursable Medicare procedure has focused attention on who is performing the procedures and on personnel training requirements. By completing Part I and Part II of this program you will receive a comprehensive understanding of bone densitometry.

In Part I, you will learn about some of the myths of osteoporosis, anatomy for DXA, osteoporosis types and facts for women, men, and children, patient eligibility, and documentation. You will enjoy discovering the most current prevention and treatments used for osteoporosis and bone health. Your main focus throughout Part I is to strengthen your knowledge and prepare you for Part II. 

After you complete the four Modules of Part I, you may wish to purchase and complete Part II. Part II includes physician and technical responsibilities, a wealth of information about the patient questionnaire and documentation, precision and QC testing, positioning, and  image evaluation.
