CT scans are more detailed than US , they are usually more helpful in measuring disease as the images are slices through organs. Yes there is radiation risk with CT scans but the benefit of tracking disease outweighs the fairly small radiation risk.
I would definitely suggest that you call your doctor's office and make an appointment to ask these questions. At the very least, your mind could be put at rest. Good luck and let us know what happens.

Hi, I agree with Jane, It would be best to call the Doctors office because worry is the worst!! ask the Gyn Onc for reassurance as to why your unstaged tumour doesn,t need a follow up CT scan, you need peace of mind because if like me you will keep on wondering and worrying . Thanks for the journal comment and good luck with everything , let us know how you get on .
