Please join Paula Papanek, PH.D, Director of Sports and Exercise Analytics, Marquette University, as she takes a comprehensive look at bone health in patients with chronic disease with focus on the effects of cancer treatment and the importance of monitoring patients post treatment into survivorship. Learning Objectives: 1. Gain an understanding of bone health fundamentals and the overall consequences of osteoporosis. 2. Identify risk factors and vulnerable populations that are susceptible to bone loss and factures. 3. Learn strategies to prevent low bone density and why screening are so important, especially in high-risk population. Takeaways: 1. Identify risk factors to screen for high risk patients. 2. Educate patients on ways to prevent low bone density.

Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, or “DXA,” is quickly becoming a common tool for monitoring athletes, but inappropriate usage of the machine’s data can be dangerous. This webinar, hosted by the ACSM, will discuss how to acquire, understand and utilize DXA data for the benefit of your athletes while avoiding some key pitfalls. Learning Objectives: Better understand DXA procedures, including precision testing, timing/frequency, and special size considerations; Be aware of best practices for DXA data- reporting for athletes and coaches as well as data extraction; and Realize Understand how DXA data can be used to prevent muscle and bone injuries.

This video will address the use of DXA for Body Composition Analysis, in particular that of fat mass and fat compartments and lean mass. We will address clinical uses for DXA body composition including the assessment of sarcopenia, metabolic syndrome and cachexia (cancer, cardiac, pulmonary, etc.) We will look at some case studies of body composition analysis used to follow clinical progression of disease. Finally we will also briefly address the use of body composition analysis in the pediatric/adolescent population. Speaker: Dr. Vyvyane Loh, CEO & Medical Director, Transform Alliance for Health, Newton, Massachusetts, USA
