Im a bit claustrophobic so not looking foward, does anyone know if there are any opem MRI machines in belgium?

Is there such a thing? They work by spinning round you.
It’s not so bad. Lots of noise to distract you. Tell the staff, they will be used to people being nervous and will help you.
Good luck.

I think Gasthuisberg in Leuven might have one. Also I think a Clinic in Vilvoorde. Ask your GP, they should be able to find one for you. Also, tell the staff if you are claustrophobic, they will be used to it.

Thanks for your answers. Unfortunately my GP was not able to help me.
@JULIENEVILLE do you know if the one in Aalst is an open MRI?
Have a good day!
