Why do I have to have two MRI's?

I need an MRI of both my lower back and my left knee. The lady in scheduling told me I will have to be in the MRI for 40 minutes for my back, and then I'll come out and then have to go right back in for another 40 minutes for my knee. This doesn't seem right. Why can't I stay in the MRI machine for 40 minutes and then have my back and knee imaged at the same time?

I'm trying to call my doctor's office to find out why this is, but I keep getting the voicemail. Can anyone explain to me why I have to undergo the MRI twice? And also, it appears the price will be for 2 MRI's, about $1000 each, does this seem right?
