Although I am told that modern CT Scans today (2012) are ""much safer than they used to be"", they are still moderately high doses of radiation, that must have some side effects, short term and long term.
Can anyone who has ever had a CT Scan, for the purpose of assessing their respiratory system, please tell me if they found their scan worth enduring? Plus, what the side effects were of their scan, how comfortable they found it, and in which year they had the scan (ie, how modern?)??
I am considering having one next year to assess a complex respiratory problem.
