hi going in for a new mri this week doc ordered without contrast , to see if i blew out what was left of my l4-5 or l5-s1 disc as i bent over and oops ,20 min later when i could get off the ground , things have not felt the same . my last mri with and without showed a large disc tear ,and looking back at the images i think the 3 that show the tear are with out the contrast ? i may be wrong .i though that was what the contrast was going to show? along with scar tissue.
my doc did not want to use contrast this time sense i have had some bad reactions to some meds lately SJS.
what i wanted to know was if the disc tear would show with no contrast?
