@azkidney My mother had her share of scans, also. She had had mini-strokes. Two things didn't help: she had some mental health issues and in her last 10 yrs developed Alzheimer's with dementia. The only way they could keep her calm enough was for my dad to be in the room, rubbing her feet. I recall as a young child she taught me to rub her feet with a simple lotion and it always really relaxed her. Perhaps if they would allow, you could pipe in an audio book to get lost in?
