CEA dropping but CT shows increase in tumors

HI everyone,  I hope some one can explain to me why my father's CEA has dropped over the past 6 months but his most recent CT shows "vast progression".  He was in the 800s and currently is 74. He was put on Cetuximab about 6 months ago. Can the CT show a false progression?  Has anyone had that experience?  My father has stage IV colon cancer--mets to liver and lungs.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
