  • You can take all medication as usual.
  • Arrive 1.5 hours prior to your appointment time for registration and to take oral contrast.

Here's how to prepare for your MRI:

  • No dietary restrictions
  • No pacemaker
  • No electrical pacer wires
  • No defibrillators
  • If you have an aneurysm clip, heart valves, or other implantable devices, please bring documentation about the type, make/model and implant date
  • If you have a neurostimulator, we may be unable to perform your exam. We will make every effort to contact you before your appointment if this is the case.
