I found it to be more common for the oncologist to read the reports than look
at the films. One oncologist would read films when he had them, one did not,
and the other only after I asked him what he saw. My Dad had three
different ones over the course of five years.
My Dad did have a gastro specialist (hepatologist) who did look at his films
when we had them. The only one to always look at the films and not go to the
report first was the surgeon. It does seem to be common that doctors don't
look at the films, but doctors who are at a teaching hospital tend to review
films, too especially if you have them with you.
