Answer

Head CT scanning without contrast may be obtained upon initial presentation of meningitis and/or encephalitis to rule out hemorrhage, increased intracranial pressure, or mass lesions.

Echocardiography can be used to evaluate overall cardiac function and valvular disease in patients with myopericarditis and heart failure.
