How to Prepare for an MRI
MRI scans involve minimal prep and no fasting. Since MRIs use powerful magnets, you should:
- Avoid clothing that contains metal, like snaps, buttons, zippers, or other fasteners
- Remove jewelry, glasses, watches, and hearing aids before the exam
- Leave coins, keys, credit cards, cell phones, and anything else that is magnetic or may contain metal in one of our secure changing rooms
If you wear a cardiac pacemaker or have metal inside your body, like metal plates, wires, screws, or rods, speak with your doctor about whether an MRI is right for you.
