Ok, I'm a little Type A and I over analyze everything!!! My mom's onc has 30 years of experience with lung CA and when she gets a CT scan, he reads it on the computer in the office and gives us the results there. Is that weird?? Doesn't he need an official read from the radiologist to confirm or deny NED or progression? Can I trust his results only?? My dad's previous oncologist just waited for the radiologist's report and never read his own scans. So, she had a good scan in June and me being paranoid is worried he might have missed something.
My husband tells me to relax and let a well-respected doctor at a large medical center DO his job and just take the good news for what it is! I, of course, want to pull the report and read it (like I usually do....then make myself worry with all the cover your butt stuff that radiologists have to write on there...PS. I'm also a RN which makes me more neurotic).
