MRI with or without contrast?

My integrative doctor wants me to get an MRI on my brain and spine because she feels I have ms. I had no brain lesions in 2005, I had two in 2007, and I had several on both sides in 2014.

Stem Cell Culture Media Improves EAE

STEP 1: Isolate stem cells from extracted baby teeth
STEP 2: Culture and grow these stem cells in the lab
STEP 3: Remove the cells and inject the culture media into mice with EAE

It may seem simple, but a Nagoya University study has shown that doing this results in a significant decrease in the disease severity of mice with EAE (animal model of MS). As the cells themselves weren't injected, this suggests that the ...
