Reply To: Is an MRI necessary?

I had a head to toe MRI scheduled on a machine that seemed to take forever to just do my skull.  I barely held it together on the skull one.  Usually, a person can sit quietly and think of things – the noise was so, loud, intrusive and pitch changing I found it impossible to ignore.  Toss in the fact it would seem to wind down and make me think it was finally over – darn thing would start up again.

For the much longer one I told the doc they needed to give me something’ They gave me a prescription for 10mg of valium to take 2-3hrs before the MRI and a second one at the beginning of the MRI.  That worked fine.
