If urine pregnancy tests were giving false negatives and a pelvic ct scan was performed at a possible 7 weeks pregnant, would the fetus show in scan?

Precautions: The radiology place I am sure would have taken the precaution of finding if you were pregnant before doing the scan and should have used a reliable test. And yes, if you were pregnant, as long as the area of interest shows the pregnancy they should be able to see it and give you advise…but then again, it should not happen.
