Radiology/Heat sensation during MRI-scan

Today I had a 1.5T scan. It just took 15 minutes. I was really hot and sweaty during the exam, but this time there was no heat sensation around my  neck, it was more like my whole body felt like I was sitting in a car on a hot day without a/c. For me it was fine this way. Furthermore, waiting for the scan, I talked to another patient who experienced the same heat on a 3T scanner like me- so it does happen sometimes. So if you experience the same problems, heed Delia's advice and choose a 1.5T-scanner.
