Patients with pacemakers, neurostimulators or other implantable electronic metallic devices should never enter an MRI suite without first being cleared by the MRI technologist or radiologist in charge. If you have previously had any metal in—or removed from—your eyes, you must first undergo eye x-rays. You’ll also need to remove all metal, jewelry, snaps, zippers, pens, pocket knives, pagers, cell phones, guns, ammunition and the like. Anyone accompanying you into the suite must remove all loose metallic objects, as well as billfolds and purses.
Patients undergoing MR cholangiography of the bile ducts or gallbladder must go without food and drink (NPO) for 6 hours prior to their study.
Any questions regarding MRI safety should be directed to the technologist or radiologist in charge for the day.
Patients who are breastfeeding and whose procedure will require the injection of a contrast agent for an MRI exam will need to express and reserve milk before the exam, and express and discard milk after the exam as the contract agent will remain in the milk for 24 hours.

This procedure uses very low doses of radiation to obtain images of the breasts, allowing doctors to detect small cancers even before they can be felt. A radiologist will interpret your mammogram and provide your physician with a written report.
You’ll change into a gown, and each breast will be compressed for a few seconds while x-rays are taken. The procedure is a bit uncomfortable, but necessary for an accurate evaluation. After the exam, we’ll ask you to wait until the technologist examines the images. Around ten percent of women will be called back after a screening mammogram for additional mammogram views or ultrasound imaging to get a better view of a particular area.
A diagnostic mammogram is essentially the same procedure as a screening mammogram but may include additional views or special techniques to magnify suspicious areas or obtain a better analysis of normal breast tissue. A diagnostic mammogram may take up to one hour, depending on how many views are needed.
