For general x-ray exams (i.e. chest, hand, feet and spine), patients may eat or drink prior to the exam. For all other imaging procedures that require patients not to eat or drink, the reason is usually because the procedure is best performed on an empty stomach. There are specific exams that may require the administration of contrast, and in these circumstances the patients needs to have an empty stomach.
Oral contrast (or dye) is used to highlight the stomach and intestines of
abdominal CT scanning exams. It is mixed with water and needs to be taken prior to the exam.
IV contrast (or dye) is used for exams that require having an IV started at the procedure time. This is used to highlight the blood vessels and organs in the chest, abdomen and other body parts where necessary.
Fasting eliminates much air in the stomach, which ultrasound does not see through. In addition, many foods contract the gall bladder thus preventing visualization.

Some powders and deodorants have little metallic crystal that could show up on the mammogram images.
Caffeine can make the breast more tender, which can make the test very uncomfortable.
