    A MRI does not use radiation, rather it uses maganetic impulses. Hence the reason they make you take off any jewelry and ask if you have a cardiac stint. Being "hot" or sweating was most likely due to a vagal response. I suspect you had some anxiety. Pain can also cause these symptoms. I suspect the reason for your back pain was most likely due to lying very still for 20 minutes. I have had MRI's before as well and also suffer from a T-6 compression fracture / post surgery.
    BTW I have a backgound in Medicine. Just saying.
