How to Prepare for an MRI

  • Please be sure to bring your referral from your doctor or we may not be able to perform your test.
  • Arrive at our office 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. These 30 minutes will allow you to complete a medical history form and to finish drinking the oral contrast – if applicable – before your study begins.
  • If you are having an MRI of the abdomen performed, do not eat or drink 4 hours before your procedure.
  • Before your exam, you will change into a gown provided by the facility.
