Sahara Heel Scan

What to expect

You will sit down and place a bare foot in the scanner. An ultrasound probe on either side of your foot will transmit painless sound waves through the heel in order to determine bone density.

How to prepare

No special preparations are necessary for a Sahara Heel Scan. Do not wear pantyhose, because you will need to remove your shoe and sock from one foot for the scan.

Getting your results

The technologist is not permitted to discuss test results with you. A radiologist will interpret the study and forward results to your doctor. You can also view your results at MyLGHealth, a safe, secure online tool.
