SDON currently has 60 members (radiographers & DXA technicians) who carry out DXA scanning in Scotland.
We welcome new members and the network is free to join.
SDON is established as a Scotland DXA Operators Network under the umbrella of the Royal Osteoporosis Society.
SDON was established with the aim of:
- Facilitating the opportunity for DXA radiographers & technicians in Scotland to meet and discuss issues and share best practice relating to DXA & osteoporosis services in Scotland.
- Providing a forum for networking and discussion of Scotland specific issues. The group will also be offered education by external speakers.
- Providing a forum for supporting service and quality improvement.
