How long for CT results?

Hello,

I had a CT scan with contrast done for multiple, expanding, protruding cysts on my scalp. Upon request, I was allowed to see the image. They obviously showed up, many more than I would expect. The doctor I have is probably swamped with patients so I don't want to bother him. I'm not really worried, just curious. Can a regular physician interpret CT? Should I get a call regarding the results? And amphetamine such as Adderall (adderrall) wont alter the results will they?  

Thanks!

Only a radiologist is really certified to read your CT. Adderall (adderrall) will almost certainly have no effect, but you should call your doc.
