Most cancer patients will have numerous radiologic studies performed during the work-up and follow-up of a specific cancer. These studies may include X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, ultrasound studies, and bone scans, just to name a few. It is important to keep a list of all studies that have been performed. Many of these studies may be performed at different facilities and it is difficult for consulting physicians to know every study that has been done. It is important for you to provide a list of the tests completed and location where the study was performed. This helps each of your physicians to obtain the results of these procedures. Always follow-up on the results of each of your tests with the physician who ordered the study. Do not assume the results are "OK" if you do not hear anything. Utilize the following chart to help keep track of each study that has been performed:
