Music and Music Therapy in the Medical Radiation Sciences

It's a wintry day in 2005. It's my first day as a senior magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) radiographer in a busy teaching hospital. Our patient is a 14-year-old male who presented for a follow-up MRI brain examination. My new colleague quickly explains the procedure and soon has the patient comfortably inside the bore of the magnet. He then clicks on the CD player and instantly the distinct, rough voice of Bruce Springsteen permeates the control room and our patient's headphones. Maybe our young patient loves listening to aged American rockers? Or, perhaps he would prefer the Arctic Monkeys who happen to be at number 1 this particular week in the UK? “Music to one's ear” certainly can be noise to one of our neighbors.
