I spoke with radiology about my son's scan and they mentioned that he is getting an injection with it, two hours prior, and I'm wondering if this is typical for bone density studies. We can't get any info on how his MRI is abnormal, just that it is, and we think maybe it is from his trileptal, but wondering if this is the right type of bone scan to tell? I didn't get an injection with my scan for osteoporosis, but this type of bone density issue is different maybe? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just a worried mom.
hmmmm... this is a tough one and I am not going to claim to be ANY kind of expert here. Aren't bone density tests all testing for the same thing? Surely your bone density doesnt change from test to test. I have heard of people having an injection prior to such tests but I wouldnt know what it is for. Your best bet is to ring radiology and keep asking questions until it makes sense to you.
