Bone Anatomy and Osteoporosis is an online bone densitometry continuing education course that covers dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanners, osteology, and bone structures, as well as bone health and bone repair. In this course you will also learn about the many different types of osteoporosis, bone mineral density (BMD) measurement, diseases, and lifestyle factors. You will also explore osteoporosis prevention, treatment, and hormone therapy.
