Be sure to bring any X-rays, CT scans, MRIs or any other material your doctor has asked you to bring, plus your insurance card. If this is a worker’s compensation or automobile claim, please have carrier information available, too (i.e., carrier’s name, address, and claim number). By the way, if you want a friend or family member to sit with you during the MRI, we will gladly accommodate him or her, but that person must also be free of external or internal metal (i.e., implanted medical devices such as aneurysm clips in the brain, heart pacemakers and cochlear – inner ear – implants). Also, patients with metal fragments in the eye may not be scanned and friends or family members with metal fragments in the eye may not accompany you.
