Answer

The initial evaluation of the patient with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) must establish the precise histologic subtype, the extent and sites of disease (localized or advanced; nodal or extranodal), and the patient's general health status. These studies help to determine the appropriate therapy and the patient's prognosis.
