Might find some expertise in a radiology lab.

I'm looking for some recommendations from anyone who has experience using an
X-Ray Bone Densitometer.  

I am expected to provide training for investigators looking to evaluate
their transgenic mice using our pDEXA Sabre Scanner.  

I'm having a hard time understanding the relationship between the histogram
averaging width and the bone mineral density and content.

I was also wondering if the Include and Exclude Analysis Tools are ever used
when analyzing a mouse image. 

I have a training protocol developed that I would love to get some feedback
on from some experts in the area.

Thanks in advance.
