HealthTunes x Prenuvo

Founded by Walter Werzowa, who completed his masters in psychology studying the affect of music on human physiological psychology, HealthTunes utilizes both binaural beats and isochronic tones to relieve stress, anxiety, and pain. Its MusicMedicine has been endorsed by UCLA Medical Center, VA Hospital of Los Angeles, and more.

Frequently asked questions

What if I have an emergency during the scan?

You will be provided with a squeeze ball at the start of the scan. You can squeeze this at any time to alert the technologist performing your scan.

What if I am claustrophobic?

Our open bore MRI scanner permits much of your scan to be conducted with your head outside of the magnet, greatly easing claustrophobic feelings. Your doctor may prescribe you a sedative depending on your level of claustrophobia. Please arrange the sedative prior to your MRI exam and ensure you have arranged a driver or alternate mode of transportation for getting to, and from, your Prenuvo appointment. Alternatively, we can prescribe you a sedative and fill a prescription for you.

Where do I put my belongings at the clinic?

Your belongings are stored in a locker or secure changing room while you are in the MRI. Additionally, our changing rooms are located in areas of our clinics that are accessible only to Prenuvo staff and members.

What if I need to change my appointment?

We have a strict 3 business day cancellation policy. Provided that you contact us more than three business days before your scheduled scan, we are happy to accommodate changes or refund your deposit.

What should I expect during the scan?

A Prenuvo MRI is a noninvasive, injection-free, and radiation free procedure. The scanner is air-conditioned, well-lit, and you will always be in contact with an MRI technologist through a two-way intercom. During the scan, coils will be placed from your head to your legs. The MRI scanner produces thumping and humming noises as it is acquiring the images. We will offer you some headphones or earplugs to reduce the noise. You can also choose to listen to music to help pass the time or watch your favorite show (except if you’re at a partner clinic). The technologist who operates the scanner will be observing you from the adjacent room throughout the scan. It is important to remain still when images are being acquired.
