Thanks for writing in.

This is a precautionary requirement that CT scan must not be done after ovulation has taken place. This is keeping in mind the patient might have conceived and should not be exposed to harmful radiation.

The test can be rescheduled if not an emergency.
Please discuss the issue with your radiologist before commencement of the scan.

Hope this helps.
