This four-page illustrated handout helps people prepare for a bone scan, which a test where a small amount of a radioactive contrast is used to help the doctor see your bones. It explains that the test has two parts, and includes a place where a health care provider can write down the day and times for each part. It explains what will happen during each part of the test, and outlines what the patient should do afterward. The document recommends that those with allergies and women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or think they might be pregnant should tell the staff before the test.
