Depends. : It entirely depends on what you are getting a ct scan of. Ct examination can sometimes involve contrast and multiple scans. In addition, each place has their own pricing. Surprisingly, you can find the same ct be priced differently in the same town. However, not every place has the same quality either. I would ask around to try to find a good balance between quality and price.

Too much?: "too much" is a relative term. Basically no. If you have a medical condition, ie cancer that is being monitored by ct then the benefits outweigh the risks. If you are getting a ct for no reason then the risks (small but finite) outweigh the benefits. Any medical procedure is not a binary state. There is a continuum of risks and benefits.
