4 Things to know before your MRI


4 things to know before your MRI:  1. Unless ordered by your doctor, you can continue to use your usual meds and you can eat normally before your MRI procedure. 2. MRI doesn't use any radiation but rather radio waves and magnetic fields, during the procedure you need to stay calm and not move, you will hear sounds from the machine.  3. Don't use any deodorant or perfume before your MRI, also remove any metal from your body before you take the procedure.  4. Opt with an Open MRI if the idea of being wheeled inside a tunnel like machine scares you off.  Also, during the procedure if there's an emergency, the technician will inform you beforehand of how to let him know so he can stop the MRI.
