Please can anyone shed any advice. I have to have a CT scan of my neck as my orthopaedic surgeon has suggested I may have issues with nerves being trapped in my neck / compression creating ongoing issues with my shoulder.
Recently my shoulder had to be re X-rayed and I asked for a thyroid shield. Now I am worried as it is my neck that will be being exposed to radiation and so how can I protect the thyroid when it's my neck being photographed this way?
Any reassurance will be gratefully received.
