You should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your MR enterogram exam at Mountain Medical. However, you may also be asked to wear a gown during the procedure.
Guidelines about eating and drinking before an MRI exam may vary. Unless you are told otherwise, you may follow your regular daily routine and take food and medications as usual.
You should inform your radiologist or technologist of any medications you are taking and if you have any allergies. If you have a known allergy to contrast material, or "dye," your radiologist may prescribe medications to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction, or order a different test.
Also inform your radiologist or technologist of any recent illnesses or other medical conditions, and if you have a history of heart disease, asthma, diabetes, kidney disease or thyroid problems. Any of these conditions may increase the risk of an unusual adverse effect.
Women should always inform their radiologist or technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
