In most cases, you can just stick with your normal, everyday routine – no special preparation is needed. You can eat and drink your usual diet, work, or play sports (unless you have an injury!) – and take any prescription medications you need. However, there may be some circumstances in which you’ll be given specific instructions to follow before the exam. These will be given to you by your doctor, or by our MRI scheduling department at the time the MRI appointment is scheduled.
