WVI Patient Information

How do I prepare for my MRI?

Be aware of any metal implanted inside your body and inform the Radiologist and/or the MRI technologist of any implants prior to being scanned. You may eat regularly before an exam, and as soon as the usual 30 to 60 minute scan is completed, you may return to your normal activities.

You will be asked to change into a gown provided by Willamette Valley Imaging for this study. Metal objects such as keys, watches, jewelry, dentures, credit cards and other metallic belongings should be left at home or with whomever accompanies you to the Imaging Center. Lockers are provided in our dressing rooms if needed. Metal clips, fasteners, buttons, locks, eyelets, etc. on clothing may interfere with the exam.

How do I prepare for my CT?

We recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to change into a gown provided by Willamette Valley Imaging for this study. Metal objects can affect the image, so avoid clothing with zippers and snaps. You may be asked to remove hairpins, jewelry, eyeglasses, hearing aids and any removable dental work that could obscure the images. For exams that require contrast media, special instruction will be given prior to your appointment. You may be asked to refrain from eating or drinking anything for 4 hours before the exam. Women should always inform their doctor or X-Ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant. If possibly pregnant, a pregnancy test will need to be taken.

How do I streamline the process?

To streamline the registration process and minimize your personal time, you may download our patient information and financial policy, print, complete and bring with you to your appointment. Our staff will make copies of your insurance card and other required information for billing purposes. You may find our current patient forms below:
