DXA – Scanning Protocols and Techniques is an online bone densitometry continuing education course that covers spine, femur, and forearm anatomy and their radiographic appearance and measurements. This course will also address patient positioning and preparation for a DXA scan. The course also includes a “work at the console” section, featuring clinical cases aimed at helping technologists understand how DXA is used to detect specific diseases. The course concludes by highlighting common DXA imaging problems related to positioning, ROI placement, and analysis.

This course is approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 3 Category A CE Credits.
