Abdominal MRI | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What is involved in preparation for the test?

A person may be told not to eat or drink for 6 hours before the test. Specific instructions from the imaging center or radiologist may differ, though, and should be followed.

Some people find it helpful to bring earplugs or ask for a special set of headphones to wear during the MRI. This muffles clicks and banging noises.
