CT Scan while receiving chemo ?

For patients like me, on first-line or second-line treatment or beyond, it's done routinely at 2- to 3-month intervals -- to determine if the chemo is working and should be continued, or not working and should be changed.

But in a case like yours, post-surgery adjuvant chemo, even though you CAN have a CT scan while on treatment, it's perhaps a moot question depending on the length of your chemo program. Also, there wouldn't be any treatment decisions made based on tumor response, since there's no tumor to make a response! Your periodic scans would be to check for any recurrence.
