Smile Re: Another MRI and Claustrophobia

hi-
they do have open MRI machines ... if the place you go to doesnt have one request that your doctor send u to one that does.

But if you must go. The last time I had a MRI (a few weeks ago) my doc prescribed Valium for me to take an hr before the scan and when i got there the tech gave me a washcloth and she said put it over your eyes and it helps. It really did I was in there for 2 hours and i was ok with it.

I have also heard some places let you bring CD's to listen to or they play music to try and help.

hope that helps and good luck!
