Bone Scan

Overview

A bone scan is a diagnostic test that can detect problems with the bones in your body.

Detailed Description

To perform a bone scan, a medical technician will inject a radioactive liquid into your vein. This liquid emits rays that are viewable on a special X-ray screen. Your bones can take up to three hours to absorb the liquid, so you may have to wait in between the actual injection and the X-ray scan. The bone scan will show your medical care provider if you have a tumor, infection, arthritis, or any other disease in your bones.
