How you prepare

By Mayo Clinic Staff

You can take the following steps to prepare for your appointment:

  • Call the day before the exam to confirm the time and location of the exam.
  • Wear a comfortable shirt with no collar or an open collar.
  • Don't wear a necklace or dangling earrings.

Unless your doctor or the radiology lab provides special instructions, you shouldn't need to make any other preparations.
