What happens during the MRI exam for prostate cancer?

ANSWER

You'll be asked to wear a hospital gown during the MRI scan. As the scan begins, the equipment will make a muffled thumping sound, which will last for several minutes. Other than the sound, you shouldn't notice anything during the scanning. With some MRI exams, you'll get a shot of a dye (contrast material). This helps your doctor see certain parts of your body more clearly.
