Surprisingly, we have not had recent difficulties getting PET/CT scans paid for in our melanoma population. However, I worry that some of our patients have a large copay for these scans. Yesterday, I had a Stage III high risk patient miss his appt; when I called him, I learned he also missed his PET/CT because of the high copay for the scan. We often interchange PET/CT with torso CT unless the area of concern is on an extremity.
