Specific Instructions:

Before undergoing a TC99M MDP Bone Scan, patients should take note of the following instructions:

  • 1

    Fasting: There's no requirement to fast prior to the procedure. You may eat and drink as normal.

  • 2

    Allergies: It's important to tell your doctor if you have had any allergic reactions to radiopharmaceuticals or iodine in the past, although such reactions are rare.

  • 3

    Medication: Continue taking your prescribed medications unless told otherwise by your doctor. Be sure to disclose all the medications and supplements you are currently taking.

  • 4

    Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Women who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or breastfeeding should inform their doctor. There's a small chance the radioactive tracer could harm the baby.

  • 5

    Hydration: Drink plenty of fluids before and after the scan. The tracer is eliminated from your body through urine, so staying hydrated helps flush it out more efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

During the scan, the radioactive tracer will be injected into a vein in your arm. There's a waiting period of around 2-3 hours to allow the tracer to travel through your blood and absorb into your bones. Then, you will be positioned on an examination table, and a special camera will scan your body and create images of your bones.

The scan itself typically takes about 1 hour. However, considering the waiting period after the tracer injection, the entire process may take around 3-4 hours.

The scan is usually painless. The only discomfort might come from the needle prick when the tracer is injected.

After the scan, you can usually go about your day as normal. The radioactive substance will leave your body naturally through your urine over the next few days.

While the TC99M MDP Bone Scan is a powerful tool, it's not infallible. There are conditions that it cannot detect, and some abnormalities require additional testing for accurate diagnosis. Undergoing a TC99M MDP Bone Scan can be a crucial step in diagnosing and treating a range of bone conditions. Your doctor will guide you through the process and ensure you understand all aspects related to this procedure. Remember to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have - being informed and prepared can help you feel more at ease during the process.

The amount of radiation you're exposed to during a bone scan is small and considered safe for most people. The benefits of diagnosing your condition often outweigh the potential risks.

The results are typically available within a few days after the scan. A radiologist will interpret the images, and your doctor will discuss the findings with you.

Abnormal results may indicate a variety of bone disorders. Depending on the findings, your doctor will guide you on the appropriate next steps, which may include further tests or treatment.
