Advice & Tips: If you are claustraphobic, ask for an "open-air" MRI. Otherwise, the MRI machines are like tubes. A typical MRI is fairly expensive...so shop around because some centers are less expensive. However, most insurance companies cover an MRI as a diagnostic procedure in determining the location of and/or further progression of plaques/lesions in the brain and spine.
