A CT scan, MRI, or MRCP is only as good as the radiologist reading it. Get hard copies (disks) of your scans (they're yours - you paid for them) and send them to a reputable cancer center like Johns Hopkins or MD Anderson or one you think is good. You will probably have to pay out of pocket for someone to give you an opinion on your scans, but perhaps it will give you peace of mind.

I think many radiologists are not accustomed to reading scans for PC. I had a CT two years before my tumor was found. Only diagnosis was diverticulitis. Low and behold, two years later, when someone looked at it again, there was a 5cm tumor on the tail! The first radiologist missed it completely.
