In brief: Minimal
There is some radiation exposure as a bone scan involves injecting a radioactive isotope into your blood and then scaning your body to see where the radioactive isotope accumulates.

In brief: Yes
The bone scan involves being administered a radiotracer that is then imaged by a camera.
The amount of radiation is very small but not zero.
