Ok....I'm floored with this news today and I need advice and I need to know your scan schedule. After what I've known from all of you folks on your scan schedules, this is bothering me. My loved one says his ENT/Oncologist is telling him that they do not like doing CT's and PET's regularly as they contain radiation and can cause cancer? He had his initial PET before tx and after tx. Now he will only have a Chest "XRAY" once a year!!
I don't know what to think of this and my blood is just curdling right now....I feel like I need amunition...or am I wrong with today's research? U of Michigan is a teaching hospital and I've read that teaching hospitals are at the top for research and technology updates. But, this has me puzzled.
HELP... : )
