Body MRI Protocols

For all Pelvic MRI studies except the Bladder Protocol
or the MR Urogram:

Please have the patient void their bladder prior to exam. Even if the patient says they don’t need to use the restroom, have them try to void anyway so that we can minimize the signal and size of the bladder so that we can better visualize the other structures in the pelvis.
