The International Society for Clinical Densitometry (lSCD) is a nonprofit multidisciplinary international professional organization. The ISCD mission is to advance excellence in the assessment of skeletal health. To achieve this mission, the ISCD has conducted a number of Position Development Conferences over the past 10. yr, bringing together international experts to review and create evidence-based position statements guiding clinicians involved in the area. The Asia-Pacific (AP) Panel of the ISCD was formed to give regional input to the ISCD from the AP Region and to oversee ISCD education and certification programs in the region. An AP Panel consensus meeting recently reviewed the most current Official Positions of the ISCD in view of the different population characteristics and health standards in the region. The reviewed position statements included those for bone testing by central and peripheral devices but did not include ISCD Official Positions on Vertebral Fracture Assessment or pediatric bone mineral density.
