No, this does not necessarily means that you can not have the MRI done with contrast.
But yes, this is a very very important piece of information that you should and must tell your doctor and the radiologist before the MRI is done.
Now a days many contrasts available have least allergic reactions.
But in your case, they may choose a more specialized, low osmolar, non-ionic contrast to be more cautious.
They may also choose to give you low dose of the contrast.
And they may also give you certain medications (to prevent an allergic reaction) before giving you the contrast.
All these measures are done to help you and prevent any reaction which may discomfort you.
It was a pleasure assisting you and thank you very much for visiting us.
