Whenever advanced imaging is required, a doctor’s order (script) should be provided. At this point, the provider who wrote the order is technically managing the care of the patient. Whole Body Scans can detect disease processes that need care and follow up including additional imaging, blood work, biopsies, or a clinical exam. It is important that a provider that understands your history and specific health needs spearheads these efforts in a coordinated fashion to assure that you receive the treatment and follow-up you require.
