Can an x-ray or a CT determine if a woman is pregnant in the very early stages of a pregnancy?
How long does it take to get the results from an x-ray or CT? Five minutes? Half an hour?

Thanks for the query.

Neither X XXXXXXX nor CT can diagnose pregnancy.

In fact it is banned to do CT or X XXXXXXX in pregnancy due to radiation hazard.

USG (ultrasonography) can diagnose pregnancy but that too not before 5 weeks.

The earliest test of pregnany would be urine pregnancy test.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Thank you
