Can I have do a bone scan with radiation in the IV if I can't handle IV iodine contrast? I don't want to have the same reaction.

In brief: There are

contrast substances which can be used (or an "alternative" diagnostic test) for people with sensitivity or allergy to Iodine!!!

Your ordering physician MUST be TOLD!
Hope this is helpful

In brief: Should not

The material used for bone scan is different than IV contrast for CT.
I am unaware of anyone having a reaction for this reason.
