Abstract

The International Society for Clinical Densitometry periodically holds Position Development Conferences (PDCs) for the purpose of establishing standards and guidelines for the assessment of skeletal health, including nomenclature, indications, acquisition, analysis, quality control, interpretation, and reporting of bone density tests. Topics are selected for consideration according to criteria that include clinical relevancy, uncertainty in the application of medical evidence to clinical practice, and the likelihood of the expert panel to reach a consensus agreement. The first Pediatric PDC was June 20 to 21, 2007 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Topics included fracture prediction and definition of osteoporosis in children; dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) assessment in children with chronic disease that may affect the skeleton; DXA interpretation and reporting in children and adolescents; and the use of peripheral quantitative computed tomography in children and adolescents. This report describes the methodology and presents the results of this recent PDC.
