This examination uses x-rays, therefore it is not recommended during pregnancy because it may be dangerous to the unborn child. Very rarely (only for medical professional reasons), after a certain week of pregnancy, we examine pregnant women with CT.
The contrast agent can very rarely cause a reaction, but the examination is not performed on anyone who is allergic to it. During the CT examination of the orbit, special attention must be paid to the radiation sensitivity of the crystalline lens!
The examination has no side effects.
