This course provides crucial information that the bone densitometry technologist can use to improve bone health assessments. Performing a DXA scan is a great way to begin to evaluate bone health, but that should not be the entire assessment. Many factors are involved in bone health, such as nutrition, physical activity, prescription drugs, and other ailments. Certain lifestyle factors dramatically increase one’s bone loss in certain areas, so the radiographer would benefit from knowing the impacts of these on bone. Genes do determine some aspects of bone health, but patients can profit from sound counsel on what they can do to ensure bone health.
This course is based on the textbook, The Complete Book of Bone Health by Diane L. Schneider, MD ©2011. This course has a corresponding posttest containing 120 multiple choice and true/false questions.
