Bone Radiography (X-ray) - How to Prepare

No special preparation is necessary before your bone X-ray scan. There are no diet restrictions and you should continue to take your regular medications unless instructed otherwise by your radiologist.

You should inform your radiologist or the technologist of any health conditions, recent illnesses and medications prior to the arthrography exam. You should also inform your radiologist or the technologist of any allergies, specifically to iodine or X-ray contrast material.
