I had MRI at initial diagnosis, then after 3 lots of carbo/taxol to check response before surgery and then again after treatment of final 3 lots of chemo. The latest scan (last month) showed possible residual disease or scar tissue and so i am having a follow up scan in October to check. I did ask my oncologist why they use MRI and not CT scans but he wasn't very forthcoming (not my best friend!) just saying 'well if others had access to MRI they would use it' (??!). One of my chemo nurses said it is a better tool for disease in the abdomen but most of you stage 3+ ladies on here will have had that also and yet as far as i can see through posts on here most people have CT scans.
Any info/opionions would be welcome.
