Is it safe to have a screening MRI because of the gadolinium injection?

Mammograms are an important part of my yearly check-up. Mammography is the most widely used tool for screening for breast cancer. Screening exams are important tests to find disease before a woman develops symptoms of the breast cancer. Many scientific studies showed that mammography reduced the number of women who die from breast cancer by 30%. However, other tests, in addition to a mammogram are recommended in women who are at high risk; defined as greater than 20% chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.
