While CT scans do expose you to small doses of radiation, the dosage is so low that the risk of developing cancer from it cannot reliably be measured. CT scans have been linked to a higher life expectancy and declining cancer death rates as they are able to discover and catch abnormalities. They are also less invasive and safer than many other procedures, such as exploratory surgery.
There are no side effects of a CT scan. Patients can immediately resume their everyday activities. For patients who have been given a contrast material, scanning centers might advise drinking plenty of water for 24 hours following the scan.
CT scan results usually will be reviewed by a radiologist within 24 hours of the scan. Next, the doctor will prepare a report explaining the results. After the health care provider’s and radiologist’s review, an appointment or call is scheduled with the patient to discuss the results.
CT scans and MRIs have similar uses. However, the way they produce images is different. CT scans utilize X-rays while MRIs utilize radio and magnetic waves. CT scans are more common because they are more affordable while still providing good detail. MRIs are used when doctors need more accurate and detailed images of the body. MRIs are usually used to diagnose issues with bones, organs, and joints.
