MRI safe: MRI contrast is not a problem/risk to normally functioning kidneys ( determined by lab tests for creatinine clearance) . Of course , you don't want too much of a good thing ....so you need to consult with your doctor before any medical test is performed to understand the risks/benefits/options of any procedure.
