I am a 31 year old male. I would like to know how many CTscans - abdomen and pelvis are safe in a 2 months time. I have had CT scan abdomen and pelvis 2 months back in another city, but now a doctor here wants it done again as I do not have the reports.
Is it safe? What is the safety limit for CT scans?
I am worried about the radiations. Could you advice if I can go ahead?
