How can you get rid of radiation from a cat scan?
Question by Frasier C.: How can you get rid of radiation from a cat scan?
Today I got my first cat scan and no one told me how much radiation this puts out. Should I be worried? Please help. Plus is there such a way to detox the radiation out of my body?

There is not way to detox your body of radiation. The harmful effects come from the impact it has on your cells at a molecular level but the radiation does not stay in your body so to speak. Having a CT is like having 400 quite a few x-rays depending on what kind of scan you had. I would not say freak out by any means but it is definitely something to be aware of in the future when your doctor wants you to undergo a CT scan.
