Some solutions: Not unique to have claustrophobia with mri, and some of my pts have done far better with "stand-up" and "open" mri's. But resolution far better with the standard device, and on occasion, pre-treatment with valium has worked great. Hope this helps.

Consider ultrasound: Consult local physical medicine and rheumatology specialists who perform musculoskeletal ultrasound. This is a very effective test that can diagnosis problems with tendons, nerves, and joints. Ask for a doctor who is credentialed in musculoskeletal ultrasound by the association of ultrasound in medicine to get the best consultation.
