Open scan for brain or head ?


Would like to know if there are any open scan's newly come out... Previously, know of closed brain scan, but what if i need to avoid that and have to undergo a brain
scan , (open) i am claustrophobic and am afraid to get into the cave for a closed
brain scan. Please advise and give me maximum information on open brain/head scans.

There are open MRI scans available for this purpose.
