“The Role of imaging in Quantitative Assessment of Osteoporosis”

The QMISG offers an advanced 1-day symposium about bone assessment from the look of densitometry. Focuses on the clinical assessment and management of osteoporosis and the essential role that DXA plays in treatment initiation decisions and monitoring of osteoporotic patients.

This Symposium will cover the potentials of the latest assessment risk fracture methods via imaging modalities invited scientific presentations on specific topics.

In this advanced course, we aim to facilitate in-depth discussions and education on the pros and cons of DEXA modality for Osteoporosis. Also DXA image and fracture risk analysis will be talked with Professor Frangi from University of Sheffield, Newly approach to achieve bone quality via MRI and the potential for clinical applications will be discussed. Specialized time will discuss of Osteoporosis Guidelines.

  • DXA Image Analysis
  • QCT-Based Failure Analysis
  • Quantitative MRI in Bone
  • Assessing Fracture Risk
  • Following Changes in Bone Density
  • FRAX & TBS
  • Osteoporosis Guidelines

 

  • Explain the value and importance of quality bone densitometry for the diagnosis of osteoporosis, assessment of fracture risk, and monitoring of BMD.
  • Review fracture risk assessment combining BMD with clinical risk factors (WHO fracture risk model; FRAXⓇ) and TBS
  • DXA Image Analysis
  • On QCT-based Finite Element Analysis of Bone Fracture
  • The role of MRI in quality assessment of Bone
  • Recognize errors in DXA analysis and reporting.
  • Recognize appropriate clinical evaluation of patients at risk for fragility fracture.
  • Update and discussion on the management of osteoporosis via Guidelines.

The course is most appropriate for those involved in the performance and interpretation of DXA scans and those managing patients with osteoporosis. It is open to Family Medicine, Rheumatologist, Orthopedic, Endocrinologist, Biomedical Engineers and Medical Physicists.
