Bone Density Test

Women should always tell their x-ray technologist or physician if there is a possibility of pregnancy.

If you have had barium, CT scan, radioisotope, or if you have been injected with any contrast dye used for testing purposes please call our offices. You may be required to wait 10 – 14 days before your bone density procedure.

Do not take calcium supplements for a minimum of 24 hours before your scheduled test.

Wear comfortable clothing that is free of any metal objects and that is easy to change if you are asked to wear a gown.

You may be asked to remove any jewelry as well as your eyeglasses before your exam.
