          Wow, I can't believe it takes that long to get your scan results back.  I have my CAT scans at Baylor Hospital in Dallas and get all but the neck scans back the same day, and then have the neck scan within 3 or 4 days.

                You guys are lucky to have such service. In Canada, we often times have to wait at least two weeks to get scan results. I am now 10 days in without results.

                Scooby, hope you are indeed still NED–yes! As the other poster said, I get scan results fairly quickly. At UCSF, it's same or next day if I already have an appointment and/or push nicely for news.
