Osteology covers the entire spectrum of degenerative and metabolic bone diseases. The assessment and interpretation of medical case history, clinical, laboratory-chemical and imaging findings in patients with bone disease requires certified, specialised osteological training [Osteologist DVO (CH), Swiss Association against Osteoporosis (SVGO)] with in-depth specialist knowledge.

An integral part of this specialist field is the performance and interpretation of QCT (quantitative computed tomography) examinations in accordance with the international guidelines of the ISCD (International Society for Clinical Densitometry).

Doctors working in this field focus on preventing, diagnosing and treating fractures and metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia, hyperparathyroidism, osteogenesis imperfecta, renal osteopathy, and M. Paget with medication.
