What happens after a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam for epilepsy?

ANSWER

Generally, you can resume your usual activities and normal diet immediately after an MRI scan.

The results of your MRI should be available to your doctor within 24 hours after your test, Monday through Friday. Your doctor will discuss the test results with you. Many facilities will give you a CD that contains the study that you can carry to your doctor.
