DXA – Equipment Operation, FRAX and VFA in an online bone densitometry course that covers DXA components and calculations, the quality of bone density measurements, and quality control. This course addresses the risk factors for osteoporosis and will provide the definition and applications of the Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX), when it is used in diagnosis and its role in making treatment decisions. You will also explore vertebral fracture assessment (VFA), including its definition and relevance, indications for use, its benefits and disadvantages, as well as VFA reporting and procedures.
