Typically street clothes are fine. A comfortable, loose fitting sweat suit or jogging outfit would be acceptable as well. For females, if we are scanning your spine, neck, chest or abdomen we will ask you to remove your bra. A sports bra contains no metal and would not need to be removed prior to scanning. We do have hospital gowns and robes, as well as scrub suits that we can have you change into, if necessary. We will ask you to place any loose metal from your pockets into a lockable storage area.
Your technologist will ask you to remove anything metallic, such as dentures, hearing aids, jewelry, hairpins or articles of clothing that may contain metal, such as underwire bras. These items, along with your purse, wallet, keys, pagers, cell phones or other personal items will be secured in a locker during your exam. You may be asked to change into scrubs, but if you are wearing sweats or clothing without any sort of metal, you may not be asked to change.
