Can You Listen to Music During an MRI?

What is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It’s a machine that takes pictures of inside your body!

The Big Question!

Can you listen to music while lying in the MRI machine? Yes, you can!

Why Music?

MRI machines make loud noises. Music helps you stay calm and relaxed.

Headphones On!

In most places, you'll wear special headphones that block out the noise.

Sometimes, you can even pick your favorite songs to listen to!

Choosing Tunes

Even with music, you can still hear the MRI technician talk to you through the headphones.

Communication is Key

Staying Still is Important

While enjoying your music, remember to keep very still to get the best pictures.

Not All MRIs are the Same

Some MRI centers might have different rules, so music isn’t always guaranteed.

If music isn’t an option, the technician will help you feel comfortable in other ways.
