Bone and joint imaging is also known as skeletal scintigraphy or bone scan. In this exam, a small amount of radiopharmaceutical is injected into the bloodstream. It accumulates in areas of the skeleton where bone is being remodeled due to injury or disease. A specialized scanner is then used to identify these areas.
To schedule a bone scan, please call our scheduling team at (512) 453-6100 or toll free at (800) 998-8214. A provider referral is required to make an appointment.
A radiologist who is trained to interpret molecular radiology examinations will analyze the images and send a report to the provider who referred you to ARA. The provider will then share the results with you. Your report will also be available on the patient portal within 15 days.
