I don't think you'll be able to. I've had several MRIs and they are very involved with you. When they go to draw your blood or maybe inject you with something, put your right arm up and say you know your veins are better in that arm. But when they lay you in the MRI bed, the tech comes in and ensures you're properly positioned for best imaging. If you try to keep your arm close to hide it, they won't know that's what you're doing and in doing their job positioning you, they'll grab your arm to move it over. Luckily, the fleshy part of your forearm will be face down if you keep your palms down. You might try the bold approach and just shove your arm out there and say, "I think this arm is not going to work. Try this one." Sometimes "owning" your baggage disarms the potentially awkward situation and puts people at ease.

You won't be able to hide the cuts. And the scars are with you for life. Sorry. Reality. Nothing new to health care professionals. We see cutters all the time.
