Endocrine Procedures: Interpretation of DXA

Endocrine Procedures is designed to aid program directors in helping assess fellows competence in endocrine procedures as a part of the new ABIM initial certification process. In collaboration with APDEM, the Endocrine Society has developed this tool to provide fellows the opportunity to practice and demonstrate competence in the interpretation of dual energy x-ray absorptiometry bone scans.

This tool includes a brief orientation to the reporting requirements of dual x-ray absorptiometry bone scans based on APDEM’s Curriculum, followed by a series of case-based images from which fellows will write reports. After the program director and fellow review and discuss their progress, the fellow will receive useful resources from the Endocrine Society and other organizations to further their learning in DXA and osteoporosis.

Endocrine Procedures is available to fellowship training programs subscribed to the Fellows Training Series.
