Answer

Answer

Obtain computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Consider functional imaging (positron emission tomography [PET] scanning or gallium scanning), particularly in patients with bulky disease.

Obtain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the central nervous system (CNS) if it is clinically indicated.
