I was diagnosed with stage IV NSCLC in November. I do have the ALK mutation and I am on Xalkori. At the time of my initial diagnosis. I did have a chest CT without contrast, followed by a pet scan. However, I have never had any imaging of the brain. Even though I have no symptoms that are suggestive of mets to the brain, should I insist upon some type of a brain image at this point.
