Non contrast MRI was clear. No tumor or other issues found. Should I request an MRI with contrast or would the non contrast show issues?

In brief: Whi MRI in first pal

You need to tell us about your general condition as to why was the MRI done in the first place? Contrast is often used but it only enhances to show a lesion better. Most serious abnormalities will show up on MRI even without the use of contrast.
Yet if your symptoms persist, a repeat MRI with Contrast may be necessary. What was your main symptom to do a MRI???
