5.0 out of 5 stars Good overview with details and case descriptions
This book is a good reference as well as learning tool. It includes many glossy prints of actual bone density scans with descriptions and instructions for interpretation. It has a good section on identifying artifacts and evaluating the adequacy of the scans. There's not much description of secondary causes of osteoporosis but that information can be obtained elsewhere...

This review is from: Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice (Current Clinical Practice) (Hardcover)
This book is a good reference as well as learning tool. It includes many glossy prints of actual bone density scans with descriptions and instructions for interpretation. It has a good section on identifying artifacts and evaluating the adequacy of the scans. There's not much description of secondary causes of osteoporosis but that information can be obtained elsewhere. In all, a good learning and reference book, esp. for physicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Clinical Bible for Osteoporosis, September 9, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice (Current Clinical Practice) (Hardcover)
This is the single most important resourse that any physician performing DEXA scans should have in his or her library. It is a reference used frequently and is a great review of the state of the art of bone density. Two copies are useful, if the first is misplaced. A must read for physicians starting the bone densitometry business.

2.0 out of 5 stars ICSD scam, March 30, 2013
Mostly obsolete or impractical information, much of it arcane,. Only bought it because it was required for ISCD recertification. Do not bother buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars 3rd edition CD sent with 2nd Edition book, July 12, 2012
I have just begun the process of the review to obtain the 15 CME. The book I ordered was the 2nd Edition and the review is the 3rd Edition!
Frustrating trying to figure out the answers when the material is SO different.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version is 1 st edition of book, March 3, 2012
By 
Robert Rosenberg (Albuquerque, NM USA) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Kindle is of the first edition of the book, not the current edition. For those interested in the latest information, get the book that is current, maybe a collector prefers 1st edition of books. What I don't understand is why they made the Kindle version the old edition??? I admit, I did not read all the details, if you do it is noted that this is the first edition. Too bad, it would have been a useful download otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just some info, May 21, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am in the process of reading this book now, and it seems quite good, but I wanted to get this piece of info out there to others. Another review indicated the CME has expired. This person was referring to a prior edition. For the third edition (and I have confirmed this by email with the Foundation for Osteoporosis and Education in Oakland, CA)30 hrs. of CME is available until Sept. 1, 2012.
