    I’m having a MRI on Sunday for my EPI and I’m just worried about my sensor if I’d have to take it off? It’s ended it’s 2 weeks but I don’t know if I should keep it off and carry on or risk putting new one on and having to take it off before the mri as I think it’s a waste any advice?

    I would keep it off.

    From https://www.freestylelibre.us/safety-information.html

    American site, but presumably the advice here is the same.

    You'll have to take it off for an MRI.
