spinal and brain mri, how long does it take?

I have a spinal and brain mri scheduled for this tuesday and I was wondering if anyone could tell me approx. how long it takes to do both? Will they stop between the different mri's or will they just do them back to back? If anyone has had both at the same time I'd love to hear your imput. I have a very bad bladder and I am so afraid I will have to use the restroom and not be able too. Thanks

Hi smile111

I had both of those together, and I was in there 2 hrs, I am sure that they have run into bladder problems before. I think that mri's are a pain in the butt, but they are so necessary for diagnosis. They stop between the brain and the spine because they put your head in like a halo thing, and for the spine, you have to lay on a special pad.
