  • I beleive you can as long as the baby is protected. I remember a woman who was pregnant AND was diagnosed with breast cancer on some show and they did a mammo on her.

  • Just as Gigi stated - so long as a shield is worn to protect the baby and you aren't exposed to radiology too often, then the baby should be just fine.
    I would speak to a Radiology Specialist or OB just to be sure.
