Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes you will be able to. If you have some problem with claustrophobia you may ask for some sedation before doing that. Should not be a problem.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
