When preparing for an MRI examination
To have an optimal appointment time, please follow these guidelines:
- Notify us upon arrival of any special needs or allergies.
- Bring insurance card and authorization or worker’s comp information.
- Plan to pay required co-pays at the time of service.
- Bring a picture ID.
- Wear comfortable clothing free of metal
With some examinations, an injection into a vein is required. The MRI technologist will explain the procedure further if your exam requires this.
MRI does not utilize any form of ionizing radiation. Please wear comfortable clothing, like sweats. Clothing with zippers, metal buttons or snaps cannot be worn. This includes underwire bras as well. If needed, a cotton dressing gown will be available for you to use.
