Brain MRI - How to Prepare

When preparing for your brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), you may be asked to wear a gown. You may be allowed to wear your own clothing if it is loose-fitting and has no metal fasteners.

Unless you are told otherwise, you may follow your regular daily routine and take food and medications as usual.

Inform your Mountain Medical technologist or radiologist if you have any serious health problems, or if you have recently had surgery. Some conditions such as severe kidney disease may prevent you from being given contrast material for an MRI. If there is a history of kidney disease, it may be necessary to perform a blood test to determine whether the kidneys are functioning adequately.

Women should always inform their radiologist or technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
