Bone Scan

Alternate Names : Bone Mineral Study

Bone Scan | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What is involved in preparation for the test?

Before the test, the person will undress completely and put on an exam gown. All jewelry and metal objects-including pierced body jewelry-must be removed so they will not interfere with the exam. A woman will be asked if she is pregnant.

Usually no other special preparation is needed. However, the person should check with the exam center or doctor before the day of the exam to be sure.
