We put one in for the scans, but not for treatment.

Hi Earl,

Depends on the treatment center. Contact the one near you to verify their procrdure.

My CK treatment required a CT scan only.

Same answer as Dr. Medbery gave . . . We place a urinary catheter for the planning procedure (roughly two hours total) but do not place it for the treatment itself.
