CT SCAN - brain damage? chemist

Posted by AMD on September 4, 2004, at 0:08:40

chemist, all,

I had an unauthorized CT brain scan about a year ago after a night of drinking (and falling unconscious in the bar). Recently I read an article than a full body scan contributes to an increase in the chance of cancer. Mine was, I believe, a brain scan only.

Is it possible some of my recent cognitive slowly, memory issues, and depression may have been triggered by the x-rays emitted during the scan? Do x-rays, in general, kill or rewire brain cells? If so, would one CT scan cause long-lasting irreversible damage? If I have felt OK at times since then (and I have, or at least functional), am I "in the clear," or would any damage have taken additional time to show up, and thus may only now be rearing its head. I have read about cognitive dysfunction later in life of babies who'd been scanned. Can I expect the same dysfunction now or in the future?

Thanks in advance for your input.
