MRI Pre-procedure Checklist
There is no special preparation for most MRI exams. We encourage our patients to wear comfortable clothing such as a sweatsuit without metal snaps or zippers. As a courtesy to our patients, we can offer robes to wear if needed.
For our patients’ safety, we ask patients to remove all hairpins, body piercings, watches, and most jewelry before entering the MRI scan room. It is best to leave your valuables at home. If you are going to have an MRI of the abdomen or pelvis, do not eat or drink 3 hours prior to your exam.
