Answer

Chest radiography

Perform chest radiography to determine whether there is lung involvement.

CT scanning

Computed tomography (CT) scanning of the abdomen and pelvis may be performed in patients with advanced mycosis fungoides (stage IIB to stage IVB) or in patients with clinically suspected visceral disease.

PET scanning

Positron emission tomography (PET) scanning to determine visceral involvement can be considered in individual cases.
