What to wear to MRI?

What's an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a machine that doctors use to see inside your body!

Wear Comfy Clothes!

Choose clothes that are loose and comfortable, like sweatpants and a t-shirt.

No Metal Allowed!

Make sure your clothes don't have any metal zippers, buttons, or snaps.

Why No Metal?

The MRI machine uses strong magnets. Metal can be pulled by the magnet and interfere with the scan.

Earrings, bracelets, necklaces? Leave them all at home to stay safe.

Leave Jewelry Home

If you wear glasses, you'll need to take them off. Don't worry, your nurse will keep them safe!

What About Glasses?

Hair Ties and Clips

The loud noises can make your body tense without you even noticing.

Special MRI Gown

Sometimes, the hospital will give you a special gown to wear. It's super easy to put on!

You'll get a locker to store your clothes and any metal items safely.
