How to Prepare for Your Bone Density Exam

  • Please plan on arriving 30 minutes prior to your appointment for patient registration.
  • Do not take calcium or multi-vitamins on the day of your exam until after the DEXA scan is completed.
  • Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Metal objects can affect the exam, so avoid clothing with zippers and snaps.
