You may be asked to change into a gown or remove metallic objects from your body, such as jewellery, zippers, buttons or pins to avoid interference with your scan. If you have had surgery to implant metal into the spine or hip, please inform the radiographer as this will interfere with your scan. If you are pregnant, or if there is any chance you may be pregnant, a DEXA scan is not suitable for you. Please discuss other options with your referring doctor.
