Per ASCO guidelines, upon completion of treatment, patients whose disease has stabilized or who have no disease progression should have CA 19-9 levels assessed at least every 3 months in the first 2 years after completion of treatment. Patients should have a follow-up visit every 2 to 3 months, in which they undergo liver and renal function tests. They should also undergo CT scans at least every 3 months in the first 2 years after completion of treatment, and every 6 months if disease remains stable.

For more information on follow-up after treatment for locally advanced pancreatic cancer, read here and here.
