Imaging Just for Men
Men’s imaging is a catchall term used to describe imaging procedures for the male reproductive organs, including the prostate gland and the scrotum. These imaging procedures include prostate MRI and ultrasound of the prostate and scrotum. DCA offers men in our community the highest level of quality imaging, utilizing the most up to date equipment and technologies.
How Should You Prepare for Prostate MRI?
If you are having prostate MRI, you should prepare just as you would for any MRI. Alert the technologist of any metal and or implanted devices you have in or on your body. The technologist will check your implant(s) for their safety and compatibility before you enter the MRI room. In most cases, you can eat and drink before your MRI.
Before the MRI, please remove glasses, pens and pencils, hearing aids, hair accessories, dentures and partials, infusion insulin pumps, jewelry, TENS units, coins, credit cards and bank cards, wallets and purses, keys, pocketknives, pagers, phones and safety pins.
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing without metal snaps, hooks, belts or zippers. You may need to wear an exam gown during the study because metal objects on your clothing affect the quality of the images.
