MRI scan restrictions: Essential guide

What's an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's like a super camera that looks inside your body!

First, No Metals Allowed!

Metals can be dangerous in MRI rooms because the machine is like a big magnet.

Leave Your Jewelry Home

Earrings, necklaces, and even watches must stay outside to keep you safe.

About Your Clothes

Wear clothes without zippers or buttons. Comfy all the way!

Phones, tablets, and other gadgets need to wait outside the MRI room.

Gadgets Stay Out!

Don’t worry! Just tell your doctor, and they'll take care of it.

Got Braces?

Feeling Sick?

If you're feeling unwell, tell a grown-up. It might be important before your scan.

Before the Scan

You might need to drink some water or sometimes, nothing at all. Just follow the instructions.

During the Scan

Stay as still as you can, like playing the statue game. It helps get the best pictures!

The MRI can be noisy. It’s normal, so no worries! Once it’s over, you can go back to your day.
