A member asked:

Is it a good idea to expose myself to radiation of hip cat scan just for informational reasons not per surgery or pain?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Informational?: Diagnostic imaging requiring xrays should always be performed to answer a clinically important question. The radiation dose is small but no patients should expose themselves needlessly.
