Patients across the country are being told to ditch their Lycra and spandex in favor of paper gowns or cotton T-shirts before undergoing an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). Stony Brook University’s hospitals in New York, the University of California, Los Angeles and Mount Sinai in New York are just a few of the major institutions that have introduced this policy in recent years.
