Answer

Additional imaging studies may be warranted, in patients with signs or symptoms that suggest visceral or bone involvement. Computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest, abdomen, pelvis; magnetic resonance imaging with contrast of the spine, and/or positron emission tomography (PET)/CT are helpful to identify lymphadenopathy, visceral masses, splenomegaly, effusions, or bone lesions.
