Give it A Tchaikovsky Finale
By Nana Dadzie Ghansah
I am claustrophobic, so getting an MRI is not a pleasant experience. If my head and upper body have to be in the tube, I need general anesthesia. I have coping mechanisms if the scan is of the lower body and my head does not have to be in the tube. I cover my eyes with a towel that I fashion into a sleep mask and listen to classical music through the headphones each MRI suite seems to have.
