  • If you are pregnant or suspect you are pregnant, inform your doctor or technologist before the procedure.
  • Do not take calcium tablets or supplements the morning of the examination.
  • Do not wear clothing with buttons, metal buckles, or zippers.
  • Wear comfortable pants with an elastic waist, such as leisure or yoga pants, or tracksuit bottoms.
