How should I prepare for a Bone Scan?

  • Drink fluids.
  • Bring previous exam reports and images if you have them.
  • No restrictions on medications, eating or driving.
  • You will be given the actual return time after the injection.
  • You may leave and come back at the appointed time.
  • Most scans require you to lie still on the table for the duration of the imaging.
  • Inform the Technologist if you wear protective undergarments.  Please change to a new set just prior to images.
  • Inform the technologist if you have a breast prosthesis.
