Initially diagnosed with CLL November 2008. Have had two lots of chemo. In July 2015, lymphocytes reached 35 . This was also when I had my first CT and PET scans. Shortly after I commenced on ibrutinib.
Had another CT and PET scan in May 2016. Understand my haematologist said that the July 2015 scans could not be used as a base (because of the readings) to compare with the most recent scans. Hence I will have a CT scan ( only) in about one month.
My question is "when are CT and PET scans utilised in the treatment of CLL. "
