Procedure Prep - MRCP
How should I prepare for my exam?
- If your previous imaging was not done at one of our locations, you may be asked to contact your former provider and request that your film be sent to us for a comparison study.
- MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to make detailed pictures; please review our MRI metal safety checklist.
- Nothing to eat or drink 4 hours prior to your exam.
- Please let us know if you have an insulin pump or glucose monitor. Our imaging machines may cause your device to malfunction, so it will need to be removed during your exam.
How long will my exam take?
An MRCP scan takes about 30-45 minutes.
What happens after my exam?
Your images will be interpreted by one of our board certified radiologists. The findings will be sent to your healthcare provider.
