Post Chemo CT-Scan: What tests are usually done after chemo?
My wife has almost completed her chemo and the doctor has ordered a CT-Scan. Originally he wanted a PET scan but insurance wouldn't pay. Is it normal protocol to order a CT-Scan shortly before the end of chemo? I heard that there are often many false positives and negatives and that the scan doesn't tell you much. She was diagosed with Stage 1 PR+ ER+ HER- last December and had surgery to remove one microscopic tumor. We opted for chemo because the Oncotype score was high. The PA said something about a baseline but I am confused if this is the right way to go.
