There is an urgent need to implement new approaches to add value to imaging. "Opportunistic" imaging is one such approach, which derives new biomarkers from routine imaging examinations.
This webinar will discuss the use of CT for opportunistic imaging of musculoskeletal tissues, including technical considerations for accurate measurements of bone and muscle. We will also review the rationale for obtaining body composition measurements to help improve clinical outcomes.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
- Define osteoporosis and sarcopenia.
- Discuss imaging measurement techniques of bone mineral density, as well as muscle bulk and quality.
- Describe technical considerations that may influence CT measurements of bone and muscle.
