There’s no special preparation necessary for the MRI examination. Unless your doctor specifically requests that you not eat or drink anything before the exam, there are no food or drink restrictions. Continue to take any medication prescribed by your doctor unless otherwise directed.

You won’t be allowed to wear anything metallic during the MRI examination, so it would be best to leave watches, jewellery or anything made from metal at home. Even some cosmetics contain small amounts of metals, so it is best to not wear make-up.

In order to prevent metallic objects from being attracted by the powerful magnet of the MR system, you will typically receive a gown to wear during your examination. Items that need to be removed by patients before entering the MR system room include:

Before the MRI procedure, you will be asked to fill out a screening form asking about anything that might create a health risk or interfere with imaging. You will also undergo an interview by a member of the MRI facility to ensure that you understand the questions on the form. Even if you have undergone an MRI procedure before at this or another facility, you will still be asked to complete an MRI screening form.

Examples of items or things that may create a health hazard or other problem during an MRI exam include:

Check with the MRI technologist or radiologist at the MRI centre if you have questions or concerns about any implanted object or health condition that could impact the MRI procedure. This is particularly important if you have undergone surgery involving the brain, ear, eye, heart, or blood vessels.

Important Note: If you are pregnant or think that you could be pregnant, you must notify your physician and the radiologist or the MRI technologist at the MRI centre prior to the MRI procedure.

Before entering the examining room, any friend or relative that might be allowed to accompany you will be asked questions to ensure that he or she may safely enter the MR system room and will likewise be instructed to remove all metallic objects. Additionally, this individual will need to fill out a screening form.
