An MRI with TLC.

Getting an MRI might feel like taking a big step, but there’s nothing to worry about. Here’s what to expect before, during and after your exam.


Please arrive 15 minutes early, and remember to bring your photo ID and insurance card. Your out-of-pocket payment is due at the time of service, and we accept check, credit card or Money Order. Wear 100% cotton clothes without metal zippers, metal buttons, under-wire or metal of any kind. We also have scrubs available for your convenience. When possible, leave all jewelry and other valuables at home. Finally, we love kids, but please no unattended children under 13 in the lobby!


An MRI is the best way to non-invasively scan the human body. It does, however, require you to be still while it scans, and the machine can be noisy when running. But don’t worry, we’ll provide you with earplugs or a headset so you can listen to your favorite songs from Pandora® or Spotify®. All you have to do is lie still and relax.
During your exam, our MRI Technologists will be close by to make sure you’re comfortable and let you know exactly what’s going on.


Once your MRI scan is complete, your images are immediately available on OneChart, an online platform for medical records. Your provider will receive your scan results from a Cleveland Clinic radiologist within 24-48 hours. After provider review, you will be able to access your report on OneChart as well.
