What to expect & how to prepare

  • Bone density scan (DEXA): Bone density tests are done with very low dose x-rays assessing your bone density in your spine and hip. Do not take calcium supplements or vitamins fortified with calcium for at least 24 hours prior to the exam. We cannot perform the test if you have had a contrasted radiology exam (including some CTs) or nuclear medicine test 72 hours prior to the exam. Avoid clothing with metal over your abdomen and hip region. This is a quick test done with you positioned on a comfortable table.
