Preparing for an MRI: Foods to Avoid

What's an MRI?

It's a big machine that doctors use to look inside your body without surgery.

Before Your MRI

Eating the right foods can help make the images clearer.

Skip Breakfast?

Sometimes, doctors say not to eat before your scan.

No Caffeine

Avoid coffee, tea, and some sodas before your MRI.

Skip candies and sugary drinks on the day of your test.

Stay Away from Sugar

Some fruits are okay, but it's best to ask your doctor.


Say No to Heavy Meals

Eating a big meal can make your stomach look different in the scan.

Drink Water

Drinking water is good, but only if your doctor says it's okay.

Always ask your doctor if you're unsure what to eat or drink.
