MYJ | Another CT scan soon to check the status of MCL

I have lost count of the number of CT or PET-CT scans I have had since the onset of mantle cell lymphoma in March 2006. I know there have been at least six and perhaps close to a dozen. But I know that there have been many. In at least once case last August, the return of MCL would not have been detected any other way. Shortly after that time, I had another form of radiation (TomoTherapy) to treat a single tumor in the abdomen.

Thankfully, the treatment was successful, as confirmed my a subsequent CT. You can bet I will be asking my physician about this story when we have a followup visit tomorrow (March 9) at City of Hope.

CT scan safety: Concerns mount over radiation associated with CT scans –

As physicians find new ways to use diagnostic imaging to discover and deal with disease, concern is growing about Americans’ increased exposure to potentially cancer-causing radiation. Annual radiation doses from medical imaging have soared sevenfold since the early 1980s, according to a report last year from the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements.
