Journal of Clinical Densitometry serves as the official journal of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry. The new journal is a timely addition that fills a void in the literature of clinical densitometry. As one example, it covers the diagnosis and management of metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis, which impacts the rapidly expanding aged population in the United States. The study of metabolic bone diseases crosses specialty boundaries, encompassing endocrinology, orthopedics, and rheumatology. The study of densitometry now must try for an even larger audience. Although densitometry instruments are generally the responsibility of radiology departments, the scope of this journal extends beyond radiologists and radiology technicians. The topics covered by the Journal of Clinical Densitometry also will be the concerns of primary care physicians in family medicine, internal medicine, and gynecology.
