Exam Preparation

Feel prepared and ready when you visit.

Things You Can Do:

  • Do not use deodorants or body powder the day of exam. If you apply hairspray or perfume, be sure the chest is totally covered.
  • For your comfort avoid caffeine (coffee, tea, cola, & chocolate) one week before the appointment. Caffeine does not affect the exam, but will reduce tenderness in the breast.
  • Patients are asked to disrobe from the waist up. A skirt, slacks, or shorts are recommended for comfort.
  • No metal fasteners on bottoms for DEXA Scan patients. Please wear an elastic waistband.
  • No calcium supplements the day of your DEXA Scan.
  • Bring your insurance card and a photo ID.
