Preparation for a MRI

Most MRI examinations do not require any specific preparation, but we ask that you choose the specific exam you are having to the left. If you are scheduled for an abdominal MRI, we will ask you to refrain from eating or drinking for four hours prior to the exam.

Some metallic implants such as cardiac pacemakers are not considered safe for MRI imaging. We will ask you to complete a screening form to check for any metal implants that may not be safe in the MRI scanner.

Some MRI examinations are best performed both before and after the injection of contrast material. Patients who have severe kidney disease should not receive this injection. Depending on your age, history of diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure, we may need to have recent blood work to be sure that it is safe to perform a contrast enhanced scan.
