WHAT IS A BONE SCAN?
A bone scan is a specialized radiology procedure used to examine various bones in the body to identify areas of physical and chemical changes within the bone. A bone scan can also help to follow the progress of treatment of certain conditions. A bone scan requires a tiny amount of radioactive substance, called a "tracer", to assist in the scan. The tracer will collect within the bone tissue at spots of abnormal chemical and physical changes.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A bone scan procedure usually does not require any preparation such as fasting. You will be asked to come into the facility prior to your exam for our certified technician to administer the tracer through an intravenous (IV) line. After the tracer is injected into the vein you will need allow time for the tracer to concentrate in the bone tissue. Here at CDI we offer two private rooms with a TV and comfortable leather loungers for you to relax in until you are ready to be scanned. After your scan is complete you will be advised to drink plenty of fluids to help flush out any reminisce of the tracer.
