BRANCE, María Lorena. Official position ISCD 2019: Puesta al día sobre las nuevas recomendaciones. Rev. argent. reumatolg. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.2, pp.52-56. ISSN 0327-4411.

The International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) convenes a Position Development Conference (PDC) to make recommendations for standards in the field of bone densitometry. This year the new official positions in pediatric bone health were published. Topics considered included relevant technical and clinical issues for dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), other bone evaluation technologies other than central DXA and the evaluation of vertebral fractures, interest of regions, serial densitometric scan, DXA utility in evaluation of atypical femur fractures, evaluation in patients with spinal cord injury, and the official position in transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. Other topics are DXA cross-calibration and least significant change, and peri-prosthetic and orthopedic bone health.

Keywords : densitometry; osteoporosis; adults; ICSD; official position.
