Yes: Yes you can have both. MRI contrast is injected into hip joint and MRI repeated. Theory being that if MRI without contrast revealed the problem no further testing needed. If it was normal a repeat MRI with contrast in joint may show abnormalities not seen on the first study without contrast. (Gadalinium)

Normal evaluation: Yes. MRI will not show everything, and MRI arthrography adds to the evaluation of the labrum and is often requested by orthopedic doctors to further evaluate problems of the "hip" joint.

CT vs MRI: Ct's and mris can focus on different things. Ct is typically used to view bone and look for bleeding while mris are used to view tissues. Also, cts use radiation similar to xrays while and MRI does not expose the patient to any radiation. However, anyone with a magnetic metal in their body can not get an mri, since MRI uses a large magnet.
