In regards to your MRI Exam Preparation, please expect a pre-scan interview to review your medical history, previous testing, and insurance information.
Be sure to inform our staff if you are claustrophobic or have a cardiac pacemaker, shrapnel, or metal clips from cerebral aneurysm surgery in your body. Bring a tape or CD if you wish.
The exam can take 30-60 minutes.
We recommend that patients wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing with no metal zippers, metal buttons, decals with glitter, etc.
Patients that do wear clothes with metal will be asked to change into a provided gown for the duration of the study. We also recommend leaving jewelry and other valuables at home, though we do provide secure lockers for purse, wallet, keys and other essentials.
