Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
You will not have to drink anything that's horrible for the MRI pictures to show up better.
If it is a plain MRI you will not require any preparation.

If my MRI is scheduled for 8:30am through the Veterans Affairs how long do you think it will take till I get my results from my MRI. When I had my CT Scan my primary care doctor called me the same day. But with this MRI it is ordered by a surgeon so a different doctor.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
It can take up to two to three days for the result to be prepared depending on the number of reports that the radiologists have the prepare i.e. it depends on his workload. Usually two to three days for MRI report at the most.
Please rate me before we proceed.
Kind regards
