MRI for diagnosis of urethral stricture

3 months ago I had HoLAP with good results.However gradually my frequency increased, my urine stream became weaker,I could not completely empty my bladder and I  have experienced pain in a suprapubic area following urination.
Urine culture was negative.
These symptoms and the sequence of events may indicate  a urethral stricture.
Paradoxically,in order to determine whether it is the case, cystoscopy and/or a retrograde urogram should be performed.
Both of these procedure may further damage my urethra and make my symptoms worse.
Also,if the condition required a urethroplasty it would postpone this procedure since it should be performed not earlier than 3 months after the last catheterization.
Considering the above would it be possible to have MRI of my urethra instead of these other more invasive procedures?
