As of June 19, 2019 Georgetown University Hospital Radioloty offers music during MRI tests via FM radio only. It is not possible to bring your own music. There is no iPod / Device hookup and no CD player. For tests that require your head to be still, no music is usually possible. The earphones that provide the FM radio sound are big enough that most patients cannot wear them due to space limitations. Together with headphones, the cushions used to immobilize the patient’s head for a clean scan cause uncomfortable crowding. I was not able to get this information on the hospital website or from the radiology department phone operator. I hope this might help other patients who are wondering about how to best handle a long scan. All that said, the hearing protection provided plus barrier cushions for head immobilization made my scan experience entirely bearable. For some reason, lumbar spine was much louder than upper spine and brain. My MRI experiences at Inova Mount Vernon were much louder than my Georgetown Univsersity Hospital MRI experience. That might have been blamed on lesser hearing protection. Be well and healthy, folks!
