I have been reading alot of folks here typically get six month PET/CT scans after treatment but never heard anyone who had PET/CT/MRI scans. I have been out of treatment since December of 2011 and have had 5 PET/CT/MRI scans so far. I am having my 6th PET/CT/MRI scan in June. Besides the cost associated with the scans, just curious on why some of us get CT only or PET/CT or in my case PET/CT/MRI every 6 months since my diagnosis. My post treatment scans have been NED so do you think my doctor is orver-ordering of scans? Just concern with increasing the risk of radiation exposure.
