MRI magnet often run 24/7. Maintenance on Telsa level magnets costs millions, thus they need to be producing images to bring in money to offset their cost to the hospital doesn't drown in useless upkeep costs. You haven't heard of someone being scheduled, but as a physician myself, I could get one tonight at 1am if I wanted to. Also, professional athletes and VIPs can get them done over night to avoid the traffic and attention. And often low priority imaging (ie. musculoskeletal shoulder and knee MRIs get done overnight if you want to get the imaging done faster).
