Not only that; but, the MRI did not detect (detection "25% failure rate") so I underwent all that for nothing.

Thank you, all, for your input and help.
The MR machine is a Philips Intera Achieva 3.0T scanner--but that's Greek to me.
And aside from that one sensation, I found the experience very, very comfortable and relaxing (the headphones shielded me from the noise well enough so that I could pretty much ignore it).
Tesla Engineering Limited manufactures resistive and superconducting electromagnets for particle accelerators of all types, and produces specialised gradient coils for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners. Tesla also supplies electromagnets for emerging applications, such as fusion research and the semiconductor industry.
Tesla provides a complete electromagnetic design, manufacture, and test service, and is certified to ISO 9001:2000, ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 14001:2004. These capabilities are available either individually or as an integrated package, depending on customer requirements.
The aim of the company is to match our products to the customer’s requirements of performance, price, and delivery. We have been designing and building accelerator elements since 1973, and our staff are therefore among the most experienced magnet designers and builders in the world.
Our facilities include state-of-the-art 3D CAD/CAM packages and analysis software, an extensive machine shop, and a modern logistics function.
Tesla has recently opened a new factory in Lancing, West Sussex. The facility is entirely dedicated to the production of magnets for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a superconducting particle accelerator under construction at CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. It features clean assembly facilities, and cryogenic test equipment.
