Courtesy Reminder Call for MRI Tomorrow

I nice gal from Austin Radiological Association called to confirm my 8:30am appointment for the MRI of my prostate in the morning. After assuring her I planned on being there, she went over the list of prep:

• 32oz of water this afternoon between lunch and dinner (on my first 12oz can post lunch as I write this) • Non-dairy based soup for dinner • Between 5-9pm, 2 Dulcolax • After dinner, only clear liquids until the MRI (white wine counts as a clear liquid, right?)

I should be grateful I guess. With the new 3T MRI, the use of an endorectal coil is no longer necessary. But an IV with contrast is. Ce’st la vie.
