HOW DO I PREPARE FOR AN MRI?
Please wear comfortable clothing while avoiding metallic objects such as a sweat suit without zippers, snaps, or metal buttons which can interfere with the magnetic field. A patient coordinator will assist you with the preparation when you arrive. If you have any questions please feel free to ask at anytime.
CAN I CHOOSE THE TYPE OF MRI SCANNER I AM COMFORTABLE WITH?
Yes. If you have had a MRI scan in the past and had difficulty due to claustrophobia, you are not alone. Claustrophobic reactions can range from a general unease in being in tight, enclosed areas to posttraumatic stress syndrome. If you are a large frame individual and have had difficulty with a closed MRI scanner, the Stand-UpTM MRI may be a better choice for you. This scanner has an unprecedented degree of patient comfort due to the unobstructed view when being scanned. You can even watch a movie during the procedure. Simply ask your doctor to refer you to our nearest Stand-UpTM MRI center.
