Dress in Clothing That Can Be Safely Worn During Your Exam
Wearing the right clothing may eliminate the need for you to change into a gown prior to your exam.
Clothing Guidelines for MRI, CT, X-ray, DEXA, PET/CT, PET/MRI and Fluoroscopy Exams
- Wear loungewear, pajamas or loose-fitting cotton or linen clothing without metal embellishment.
- Do not wear clothing or undergarments with metal fasteners, zippers, hooks, under wires or other metal components.
- Please leave items such as watches and jewelry at home.
- For MRI and PET/MRI exams only: Do not wear compression-wear or tight-fitting spandex. Many brands of fitness clothing have metals woven into their fabrics making them unsafe to wear during an MRI exam.
Our clinical staff will ensure you are dressed appropriately and safely for your exam. If you are wearing anything that is deemed unsafe, you will be asked to change into a gown.
