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.


Dress for your scan. Wear comfortable clothes without metal zippers, metal buttons, under-wire or metal of any kind. When possible, leave all jewelry and other valuables at home. Don’t forget your insurance card!


We’ll keep you comfortable
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.

We’ll keep you informed
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, you’ll receive a CD with a copy of the scan for your medical records. Within 24 hours, your doctor will receive the scan results from a Cleveland Clinic radiologist.
