(MRI) Magnetic Resonance Imaging

When You Arrive

Be sure to arrive at the time you were given. This will ensure that we can help you with your registration and have you ready for your MRI exam on time. The MRI staff will go over all the MRI safety questions in detail with you as we prepare you for the exam.

Removing jewelry  
You will be asked to remove clothing and a hospital gown will be provided. You must also remove all jewelry to avoid interference with MRI imaging. A locker will be provided for you to secure all of your belongings.

IV injection 
If your doctor ordered your MRI with contrast (dye), you will be given an IV in your arm before the MRI begins. We will inject the contrast dye through this IV.

You should continue your daily routine with any medications that you regularly take.
