Technescan HDP During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant before using Technescan HDP; it is unknown if it would harm a fetus. Ideally, examinations using radiopharmaceuticals, especially those that are elective in nature, of a woman of childbearing capability should be performed during the first few (approximately 10) days following the onset of menses. Technescan HDP passes into breast milk, therefore formula feedings should be substituted for breastfeeding.
