      Has anyone undergone an MRI with a Silent Scan MRI by GE or some other MRI with noise reducing technology?

      If you wear earplugs and earmuffs (both of which are typically provided by your radiologist) then the dB level of almost any MRI will be reduced to 85-90, which will not hurt you in the short time you'll be in the tube. I had mine in a Siemens machine in a room as small as a closet with no noise padding and it wasn't uncomfortable.
