Timing of follow up MRI
For those using avastin or avastin and a cytotoxic drug, how long after the initial infusion of avastin before an MRI was completed to check for signs of tumor stabilization. Dr. Benkers at Swedish says after the 2nd infusion, but before the 3rd (which would mean MRI between weeks 2 and 4 after the initial avastin infusion) and Dr. Lai at UCLA say just before the next dose of (in Jeremys case) CCNU. In Jeremys case that means about 6 weeks after the initial dose of avastin. Just wondering what others are doing.
