CT Scan

is it normal to have a CT scan ordered.  I was diagnosed with pneumonia over  week ago without an xray.  I was still having trouble breathing a week later, despite hacking up a LOT of hard solid phlegm.  Doc said he wasn't sure why because my lungs now sound clear.  He had an xray done and said he saw nothing.  He got the radiologists report today and it says the is a questionable area.  My doctor still says he doesn't see anything but is ordering a CT scan.  Is this normal.
