Hi, I have just had my 3rd MRI done of brain and cervical spine. The appointment said MRI with contrast. As it was about to start I said “what about the contrast dye?” and was told it will only be used if the radiologist thinks that is is necessary. After the spine was done she said that no contrast was required but it may be needed for brain. Anyway the brain was done and after that she said that no contrast was needed. All I can think of is that there were nothing active as such which is probably a good sign.
