The ISCD 26th Annual Meeting provides a forum for the exchange of the most current and new clinically relevant and evidence-based information and research regarding skeletal health assessment.  Additionally, prevention, diagnosis and treatment (pharmacological and non-pharmacological) of osteoporosis and fracture risk is a major focus.  As technology continues to evolve and advance, this educational program will delve into the use of artificial intelligence tools that have the potential to capture underlying trends and patterns, while also covering machine and deep learning used to model the risk of fracture.  This educational program is designed to enhance learner competence by providing targeted learning opportunities to enhance knowledge which learners may begin to use in their professional practice.  

ACCME Accreditation Statement : The International Society for Clinical Densitometry is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Physician Credit Designation Statement: The International Society for Clinical Densitometry is to designate this live educational activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Instructions to Receive Credit: Physicians will be required to complete an evaluation of the activity online after conclusion of the activity. As part of that evaluation they will claim the amount of credit commensurate with extent of their participation in the activity. After completing the evaluation, a certificate will be generated that the physician may print to indicate credits earned.

ASRT Category A Credit: ASRT is to approve Category A credit for this meeting. Individuals seeking ASRT Category A credit will need to scan in and out of each session using their RFID badge. Individuals must remain in each activity a specified amount of time to be eligible to earn credit for that session.

Session times, dates and speakers may change at the discretion of ISCD.
