Abstract
The International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) has published position statements on topics relating to the use and interpretation of measurements of bone mineral density (BMD). The most recent appeared in the Journal of Clinical Densitometry (1) and was republished in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism and in Osteoporosis International (2,3). The topics included the indications for testing with BMD, the use of central dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for the diagnosis of osteoporosis, the use of the Z-score and some recommendations for the spelling of the T-score and Z-score. Although these topics were chosen in an attempt to produce international consistency and consensus, most of the position statements lack a... (More)
