While going for the MRI, there are several preparations and precautions one needs to know. First, make sure your doctor is well-aware of your medical history and your family’s medical history, as it will help them plan treatment well. Especially if you have a family history of heart disease, asthma, diabetes, renal disease, or thyroid issues, do not forget to mention as these increase the chances of adverse reactions.
Metal artifacts, such as jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures, and hairpins can cause MRI pictures to be distorted. Therefore, leave them at home. Choose your attire, keeping comfort in mind, or you might need to slip into hospital gowns to ease out the process.
In case you’re pregnant, claustrophobic, menstruating, or breastfeeding, mention that. Besides this, if there is any other information, you will be updated about the same.
