Preparing for Your Bone Density Test

If not already scheduled by your provider, please call us to schedule.

  • Please complete your Bone Density Test Questionnaire.
  • If you have had a barium, CT with contrast or nuclear medicine test fourteen or fewer days before bone density scan, contact our office immediately.
  • Do not take calcium or any vitamins the morning of the test.
  • You may eat or take routine medications.
  • Please avoid clothing containing zippers, snaps or underwires. You may need to change into a gown.
  • Appointments are booked for a one-hour duration. The actual test takes 15 minutes or less, and is painless.
