A bone scan measures how much calcium and other types of minerals are in an area of your bone. The scan may help your health care provider determine your future fracture risk and measure your response to treatment. It is important to be aware of specific conditions that may interfere with the scan (such as other tests you had done recently, whether you think you may be pregnant, etc.). This pamphlet outlines how the scan is done, how to get ready, and what to do during the test.
