Fin’s Fast Facts: - Your MOST IMPORTANT job is to hold still during the MRI. - Everyone must remove all metal before going into the MRI room to make sure we all stay safe. - Remember to wear comfy clothes that do not have zippers, snaps, glitter or buckles. - A favorite blanket or stuffed animal can go into the MRI scanner with you as long as it does not contain any metal. - You will never be by yourself. A parent or caregiver can stay with you during your MRI, just remember not to talk to each other once the scanning has started. - Since the machine is noisy, we will give you earplugs and headphones. - Some kids say it helps to make a list of questions ahead of time. Lots of people are excited to meet you and ready to answer all your questions!
