Abstract

Every 2 years the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) organizes a position development conference at which a panel of experts reviews topics of interest in the field of bone densitometry and proposes Official Positions of the ISCD. In July 2005, the most recent conference was held in Vancouver, Canada, during which 4 topics were discussed: (1) Cross-calibration of dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) systems, (2) Vertebral fracture assessment, (3) World Health Organization (WHO) classification of bone density for populations other than postmenopausal women, and (4) WHO classification for varying skeletal sites. The Official Positions reached at this conference enumerated in this report have been published in The Journal of Clinical Densometry, and can be found at www.iscd.org.
