Prior to your scan you can eat and drink normally. You may wish to bring a friend or relative with you. If they wish to stay with you during the MRI scan they too will have to complete a safety questionnaire.On arrival your details and safety questionnaire will be checked with you by the radiographer, who will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
