Bone Scan Side Effects and Warnings
Side Effects and Warnings
Complications are rare, but no procedure is completely free of risk. If you are planning to have a bone scan, your doctor will review a list of possible complications, which may include:
- Allergic reaction to the injected material
Some people worry about the use of slightly radioactive material. The amount of radioactivity is very small. It is eliminated from the body within 2-3 days.
Be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor before the test.
#Call Your Doctor
Call your doctor if you have questions about the test, your condition, or your test results.
