Can I eat and drink before my MRI?

There are some MRI exams that require you to not eat or drink. These exams are MR Enterography, sedation performed by the anesthesia team, MRCP (Imaging of the bile ducts), Imaging of the pancreas and MR Urograms. For breast imaging you will be lying on your stomach so eating a light meal may be helpful for your comfort. For all other MRI exams you may eat and drink as usual. For detailed instructions on your specific exam [i.e. enterography] please check the links provided on the main page.




Thank you for choosing Elliot MRI, we hope your experience is pleasant and the scans we provide ensure answers in your healthcare journey.
