My first MRI's were without contrast and showed minor areas of concern but nothing enough to conclude lesions, it actually pinpointed an area of concern on the pituitary which sent me back for that instead and then with contrast... then we spent the next 18months trying to disprove MS until the Optic Neuritis set in, and he sent me for MRI's both ways ... my lesions still don't show. (They sometimes don't.) His favorite saying is that before MRI's we used to dx MS, so we still can today based on the other myriad of symptoms presented.
So I'd wait and see... I think they are hesitant for MRI's becos of expense and insurance companies start denying them later on if they appear to be "abused" procedures etc... it's a tricky game they balance. Contrast also presents its own set of risks with some folks too... reactions, allergies etc.
