My original question is if the CT scan can show the size of the prostate. The radiologist felt it important to mention the size in the CT scan. For the answer to my question, it makes no difference why I'm asking it.
If you ever have to pay out of your pocket for these tests and/or go through the misery of having them, you'll start to question your doctor why they want them and if they're absolutely necessary. So if you're lucky enough to pry your test results from your doctor and look at what is says, you may have questions why he's doing what he's doing and why you may need to spend thousands of dollars for something you already had done. Doctors are no longer Marcus Welby's. They're business people first and formost and are most concerned in bringing dollars into the practice or group.
I've many times questioned having tests only to find out didn't need it, they just wanted to do the series. They just assume ins pays for and don't really care of the misery they'll put you through. If you go to doctors enough for you or your family, you'll see these guys aren't pure white and you suffer while they drive BMW's and live in fancy homes.
