How to Prepare for Imaging Tests

The following are general guidelines for how to prepare for various imaging tests. You may be given additional instructions when calling to schedule your appointment. Please check with the doctor who ordered your exam to see if you should follow any additional specific instructions.

Please arrive at Mount Sinai Queens Imaging 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. You will be asked to complete medical forms and will be given a locker to store your clothes and belongings during your test. Please leave valuables, including jewelry, at home. Due to the high-tech equipment in use, some of the exam rooms are kept cool, so you may want to bring a light sweater or jacket that’s easy to remove. Please bring test prescriptions and all doctor-produced documents concerning procedure.
