Hi, have read your query. MRI is used to analise the soft tissue of brain without causing it much harm but ct scan can cause harm to brain if especially done for more the 2-3 times as in your case you have done 6 times ct scan .

is it bad to smoke marijuana right before having a CT scan done on my brain? Will it affect the results of the CT scan in any way?
Well I do not think it will affect the results given that CT scan can only determine brain structure abnormality and can not detect impulse or chemical changes in the brain. How ever it is usually best to avoid taking any extra substance including food while going in for any laboratory tests.
