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.
