Just getting as much information as is possible. CT is an x-ray just using technology to get different views. The traditional x-ray is probably being used to compare to the bone scans to look for changes. Did he have full body x-ray and CT or were they specific to certain areas? Of course, as always, ask the doctor that ordered them.
Traditional x-ray is less radiation, much cheaper and ore often used for skeletal investigation. CT is many times the radiation, much more expensive, more difficult to administer as movement affects the imaging and is more often used for internal organ investigations. They are looking for mets and use a combination of techniques as no one does it all.
