CT Scan of the Abdomen Side Effects and Warnings

Side Effects and Warnings

#Possible Complications

Sometimes a chemical (called contrast) is used to help improve the pictures. Complications with contrast are rare. If you are planning to have a CT scan with contrast, your doctor will review a list of possible complications, which may include:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Kidney failure

Be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor before the test.

A CT scan may not be advised if you are pregnant. Talk to your doctor.

#Call Your Doctor

If you are given contrast, call your doctor if any of the following occurs after the test:

  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Swollen, itchy eyes
  • Tightness of throat
  • Difficulty breathing

In case of emergency, call 911.

I found this product by accident , learning about what causes diagnostic CT exposure and what prevents it. I was impressed by the list of ingredients so I gave it a try. I was required to repeat diagnostic scans from time to time and learn that X rays exposure is accumulative so it makes me worried. https://www.smartumx.com/smartumx-new/
