PREPARING FOR YOUR MRI
Do I Have To Prepare For My Open MRI?
Normally no special preparation is required prior to an MR exam (check with your physician to be sure no special preparations are necessary on an individual basis). You may eat normally and go about your daily routine. Continue to take any medication prescribed by your doctor unless otherwise directed.

Because of the magnetic field you will be asked to leave the following items in a safe place outside the scan room:
Coins
Jewelry
Watches
Glasses
Credit Cards
Keys
Hair Pins
Other Metal Objects
You may also be asked to remove makeup, dentures and wear a hospital gown to avoid magnetic interference from belt buckles or zippers.Once you are situated onto the table, make sure you are comfortable so that it is easy to keep still. Breathe normally, as there is nothing about the procedure to make you uncomfortable. The only thing you will notice is a faint knocking sound which represents changes in the magnetic field. Once the exam is over, the technologist will assist you out of the scan room.

Because of the potential harmful effects associated with all metallic objects in a magnetic field, you should check with your physician or MRI technologist, if you have had any brain, ear, eye or other surgeries or any of the following:
 
Pacemaker
Neuro-stimulator (Tens Unit)
Metal Implants
Aneurysm Clips
Surgical Staples
Implanted Drug Infusion Device
Foreign Metal Objects In the Eye
Shrapnel or Bullet Wounds
Permanent Eyeliner
