A 36-year-old female asked:
Can you drink alcohol 24 hours after having a ct scan? i had to drink contrast(not as much given my weight) and had dye injected during the scan.

Yes: Yes, assuming that you are healthy and have normal kidney function you can drink alcohol 24h after a CT scan. The dye should all be eliminated from you body. Just remember that increasing fluid intake(water) decreased the possible harmful effects of contrast on your kidneys.
