Talk to you r dr: You should consult with your dr who ordered the test. He may refer you to a pulmonologist who will do further testing eg bronchoscopy.

Call doctor...: Your wife's doctor will get the result of her scan within a few days to a week. She should call her doctor's office and let them know when and where the scan was done and ask if the results are available yet. Also, make a follow-up appointment when you tell them the scan is complete. Good luck!
