open mri preparation

Phase 1

  • Do absolutely anything that you would usually do throughout your normal day. Fortunately, there are no specific MRI procedural instructions outlining what you can and cannot do. So, go about your daily business unless you are otherwise instructed by your doctor.

Phase 2

  • Arrive to your appointment on time.
  • Remove any metal items (watch, earrings, belt, etc.).
  • Put on the gown given to you by our staff.
  • Relax. Take deep breaths.
  • If you start to feel anxious, speak with our staff. We're here to help!

Phase 3

  • Remove your gown and change back into your clothes.
  • Give yourself a pat on the back because you have officially completed your MRI scan.
