Why Do You Need to Take Off Your Jewelry for an MRI?

What is MRI?

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

Super Magnets!

MRI machines have very strong magnets. These magnets help get clear pictures of inside your body.

Metal Attracts

Metals like the ones in jewelry can be pulled by these strong magnets.

Safety First!

To keep you safe and make sure the machine works right, no metal is allowed.

If jewelry is worn, it could move suddenly because of the magnet and hurt you.

Jewelry and MRI

Metal can also block the view, making it hard for doctors to see the pictures clearly.

Clear Images

Not Just Jewelry

It’s not just necklaces and rings, but all metal items need to be removed.

Before the Scan

You’ll get a locker to keep your jewelry safe while you have your MRI.

Without metal, you can relax, knowing you're safe and the scan will go smoothly.
