MRI tomorrow...what to wear?

I'm having a MRI on my neck tomorrow. I had one in the same place 5 years ago but I can't remember what I wore to the appointment. Maybe it won't matter...will they have me wear a gown? In that case, I probably won't wear my thong!

Yoga pants and hoodies for my brain MRIs every 3 months. They never make me wear a gown. Also-no jewelry or makeup.

Good luck!! I hope everything's okay!

I just had one for my abdomen a little over a week ago. I didn't wear anything metal. No hooks, snaps, grommets, zippers, etc. I wore workout pants, a tank, and a hoodie that had no metal grommets for the drawstrings. No jewelry. I was able to keep my clothes on, no gown! You will just take your shoes off.

Since this is on your neck only, having any zippers or such on your pants may not matter though.

When I had one on my back, they had me leave my pants on and wear a gown on top. Also you have to take all your jewelry off so probably better just not to wear any...

I think you are supposed to wear a thong ! All I remember from when I had breast cancer was, NO jewelry!

I have had them on my ankle and just wore my regular clothes. Took off my belt and jewelry when I got there but that was it. When I had one on my back this summer they had me put on scrubs and take ff everyone else except my undies.

No bra. If you go with yoga pants, braless with a sweatshirt, they will let you wear street clothes.
Otherwise, they will suggest a gown for the top. Leave rings, watches at home. And if it is tough to lie still with painful neck, you might want to take a painkiller at home, so you can just lie still easily.
