A conceptualization of claustrophobia [Rachman, S., & Taylor, S. (1993). Analyses of claustrophobia. Journal of Anxiety Disorders, 7, 281–291] was evaluated in the context of magnetic resonance imaging. One hundred eleven students responded to questionnaires that quantified fear of suffocation, fear of restriction, and sensitivity to anxiety symptoms. Sixty-four of them were then exposed to a mock magnetic resonance imaging assessment; maximum subjective fear during the mock assessment was self-reported, behavioral reactions to the mock assessment were characterized, and heart rates before and during the assessment were recorded. Scores for fear of suffocation, fear of restriction, and anxiety sensitivity were used to predict subjective, behavioral, and cardiac fear. Subjective fear during the mock assessment was predicted by fears of suffocation and public anxiousness. Behavioral fear (escape/avoidance) was predicted by fears of restriction and suffocation, and sensitivity to symptoms related to suffocation. Cardiac fear was predicted by fear of public anxiousness. The criterion variance predicted was impressive, clearly sufficient to legitimize both the research preparation and the conceptualization of claustrophobia that was evaluated.
